In this exhibition most of the ‘basket’ form has moved beyond function. The earliest forms of mankind’s weavings were probably containers and textiles. Their forms evolved with culture for thousands of years, ultimately transforming from utilitarian objects to objects made for art’s sake.
The artists included are: Chiaki Dosho, Michiko Fukai, Shoko Fukuda, Kakuko Ishii, Ritsuko Jinnouchi, Mieko Kawase, Yukari Kikuchi, Peke Kimura, Yohko Kubo, Yoshie Maejima, Hiroko Okuno, Chizu Sekiguchi, Haruko Sugawara, Shizuko Takahashi, Michiko Tamura, Toshiko Uchino, Makiko Wakisaka, and Amayokasim Yamamoto.
