The unostentatious figure has been handed down through centuries as one of the standard forms of bamboo flower arranging baskets since a master of tea ceremony, Souzen, originated it. The title, "Sho-souzen", means "small version of a souzen basket". The repetition of square and round created by the handle, the opening of the container, and the base, is discreet but exceptional.
A waterproofed cylinder container of the same color is set inside for flower arrangement purposes.
Comes in a gift box with a seal with the words "Bamboo Wire Work".
 
About the artist
Born in 1937 and lives in Shizuoka. In 1957, he began to study under the bamboo craft master, the late Ozawa Yoshimasa, and then became an independent artist. Since then, he has continued to create and preserve the techniques of the Suruga Senkin craft that originated around 1620.
In 1976, he received the Mayor's Award at the Shizuoka City Arts and Crafts Exhibition, and since has received countless awards such as the Governor's Award. He now works as the preserver of the techniques of the "Traditional Craft Designated by the Minister of Economy and Trade".
