Rokansai Iizuka“Hobichiku Bamboo Flower Basket”

/

飯塚琅玕斎(1890–1958年)
「鳳尾竹花籃」
1930–1940年代
鳳尾竹
25 × φ32 cm

数百年の間、囲炉裏の煙で燻された鳳尾竹(ホウビチク)と呼ばれる大変貴重な竹を素材とするこの作品は、いくつか存在する琅玕斎の制作した類似作品のなかでもとりわけ色艶が素晴らしく、大型で力強い作品です。民具のフォルムを芸術の域にまで高めた琅玕斎の代表作の一つといえるでしょう。

Rokansai Iizuka(1890–1958)
Hobichiku bamboo flower basket
1930s–40s
Hobichiku bamboo
25 × φ32 cm

This work employs an extremely rare kind of susudake (“soot bamboo”) called hobichiku (Phoenix-tail bamboo) darkened by hundreds of years of exposure to smoke rising from a hearth fire. A large and powerful piece, it stands out for its beautiful luster even among similar existent works by Rokansai. One of the foremost works by Rokansai, who elevated folk baskets to the realm of art.
