Hiroyuki Yamamoto

There are mainly two different bamboo craft techniques. One is weaving thinly whittled bamboo sticks, and the other is assembling carved bamboo parts. As I like weaving, I have been using weaving techniques, especially the wickerwork weaving, for my artwork. I would like to use the assembling techniques together with the weaving techniques in my future creations to produce different variations.
