Bamboo Lattice Vase H

The craftwork called “Suruga-takezaiku” is  made through the process of a single artisan folding takehigo (thin bamboo sticks, about 2mm in diameter, made from cracking bamboo into pieces) one by one, for a resulting creation that looks as if it is comprised of a thousand sticks. This is how the word sensuji – one thousand lines – was later added to its name. While takezaiku in other areas uses flat bamboo sticks, those in Suruga are round. They require extra effort in processing, which gives an elegant touch to the finished product.
