Rare Handmade Bamboo Basket by Master Bamboo Carver and Weaver HAFU Matsumoto. Exquisite detail in this one of a kind piece made especially for seller. It has remained in its box, except for special showings, since it was created in 1996 to prevent fading or sun damage. The bottom is inscribed with Hafu Matsumoto's signature and the box is signed and stamped with his seal as well. His pieces are appear in high end galleries and collections around the world incising the Asian Art Museum in SF.

Hafu Matsumoto (b. 1952) studied under Iizuka Shokansai (designated a Living National Treasure in 1982). He then set up his workshop and moved to Tateyama in Chiba in 1988. He is known for creating works out of pieces of bamboo into beautiful organic sculptures. In 2007 he received the Tokyo Governor’s Prize at the 48th East Japan Craft Art Exhibition, and in 2014 he won the Japan Kogei Association Chairman’s prize at the 61st Dento Kogei Ten (Japanese Traditional Craft Art) exhibition. His work is in significant collections, including the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco, USA.
