Come and experience this live demonstration of traditional Japanese basket making techniques used to transform rocks into art – art that invites quiet contemplation, peace and serenity.
Presenters Karen Okino Butzbach and Shizu Okino use rattan or cane to wrap and tie the rocks with ornamental knots used in Japanese ikebana basketry. The stones are individually selected for shape, color and pattern. The knots are selected to complement the size and shape of the stone. The result is a fanciful, decorative piece that, we believe, projects a sense of peacefulness and tranquility.
