Jiro Yonezawa

November 2009 | BY | Issue 70, Winter 2009-2010

Portland, Ore., artist Jiro Yonezawa combines traditional weaving techniques from his native Japan to create his inventive baskets. Symmetrical, tightly woven forms are combined with the looser, irregular weaves found in Japanese fishing baskets in Yonezawa’s pieces, ranging from 8 inches to 7 feet high. “Missionary” combines bamboo, cane, cedar root, wood and urushi lacquer. Yonezawa’s work, retailing from $1,800-$18,000, is available at Cervini Haas Fine Art in Scottsdale, Ariz., and Traver Gallery in Seattle and Tacoma, Wash.
