Basketry Exhibition

Noriko Takamiya


I have been exploring the traditional basketry technique and material to seek new ways in

which I could develop to create my image of baskety.

am especially intrigued with drawing out the latent three dimensional possibilities from the

interconnectedness between me and the property of the technique/material.
