Japanese bamboo art for sale
The private galleries and curiosity shops of London and Paris were flooded with Japanese woodblock prints, calligraphy, and ceramics.
But one traditional art form was, in retrospect, conspicuous by its absence — woven bamboo baskets.
At the time, bamboo weaving was still viewed in the context of the practical tools it yielded ropes, kitchen utensils, baskets and boxes.
Despite requiring decades of mastery and being steeped in centuries of tradition, the craft had been passed between generations and was not considered an elite art.
Artists wouldn’t even sign their creations, as having adopted the practice from China they feared a Japanese name would damage the value of the work.
Growing Western demand
In recent years, however, the West has developed a growing taste for this intricate art form, with some pieces selling for tens of thousands of dollars.
Bringing together more than 70 bamboo artworks, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s current exhibition “Japanese Bamboo Art:
The Abbey Collection” is just the latest example of how overseas interest in bamboo is matching and, arguably, outweighing that in Japan.
Today, TAI Modern houses a huge collection of woven items demonstrating the art form’s versatility from delicate and symmetrical boxes to irregular baskets made from thick, coarse-looking bamboo.
Contemporary artists still draw on the tradition’s utilitarian roots, creating vases and other usable items. But the material is also apt for more abstract expressions.
This is an approach increasingly explored by Japanese artists in the postwar period, according to the gallery’s director, Margo Thomas.
“Whether or not you use them, they are work of arts.”

Colorful, cartoon-like forms inspired by nature, religious iconography and the country’s famous “ukiyo-e” wood block prints.
Rugen’s methods are also steeped in history. In fact, he is one of a small number of Japanese artists still practicing the ancient tradition of “tabor” (literally “hand-carved”) tattoos.
The first written records of tattoos in Japan are more than two millennia old, and the use of needle-tipped rods like Rugen’s can be traced back centuries.
The tools of tebori may appear primitive compared to modern tattoo machines, but the principle was much the same:
Artists used the rods to manually push ink beneath the top layers of skin, leaving a permanent mark for either decoration or punishment.
