Named Clear Stream, this one-of-a-kind basket was created by Iizuka Shōkansai to facilitate ikebana flower arrangements. Made of Hōbichiku bamboo with a beautiful natural patina, it was formed using an openwork hexagonal plaiting and wrapping technique. The incised signature on the bottom reads Shōkansai saku (Made by Shōkansai).

The basket comes with the original vertically scored and lacquered octagonal bamboo otoshi (water container) and with the original fitted sugi-wood tomobako storage box, which is inscribed on the outside Hōbichiku Hanakago (Flower basket using Hōbichiku Bamboo) and inscribed and signed on the inside Seiryu (Clear Stream) and Shōkansai saku (Made by Shōkansai) with a seal reading Shōkansai saku (made by Shōkansai).

Iizuka Shōkansai is a living national treasure of Japanese basketry and the son of Iizuka Rōkansai, the most important Japanese basket maker of the 20th century.
