Bamboo Exploration :

The expressive potential of bamboo material was examined through Japanese basketry techniques. Bamboo poles were broken down into refined strips and the elegant curves of the strips were inspiration for the piece. Bamboo is a grass species and for the most part has a linear, rigid quality, but once it is broken down into the strips, it has a much more playful and “grassy” feel.

This project was developed and created via a scholarship from the Anderson Ranch.
