Sculptural Handwoven Basket



Retail price



18″ diameter x 27″ high.


Beautiful simplistic tall hand woven basket. Hand made from tightly woven rattan with bamboo on the sides and wood on the base wrapped in tin. Both sculptural and usable. Full dimensions; 18″ diameter x 27″ high x bottom 12″ diameter. Circa 1940

This tall sculptural basket was hand made in the spirit of Wabi-Sabi, a Japanese philosophy that beauty can be found in imperfection and impermanence. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. A beauty of things unconventional. It is the opposite of vulgarity. The costs of achieving this kind of minimalism are seemingly inconsistent with its mission of aesthetic humility. This kind of luxury is for a select few: The Emperor of Japan had a Wabi garden. Wabi is for people who already have a lot.
