Iede Takahiro 家出隆浩 Japanese

Not on view

Iede Takahiro creates complex textures through his unique strip-weaving and soldering method. Drawing inspiration from traditional Japanese bamboo basketry, the artist first creates a flat sheet by tightly weaving various metal strips according to a pattern, then uses melted silver as an adhesive. Finally, he creates the shape through precise hammering. In 2016 he received the Japanese government’s Medal with Purple Ribbon for Artistic Achievement.
