Description

Label: At age sixteen Yako Hodo began six years of apprenticeship with three different bamboo masters before becoming an independent artist. Making only one or two exhibition pieces each year, he won numerous awards for his bamboo work, which transforms the strength and resiliency of bamboo into energetic, sculptural compositions. While Wave Crest and Forest suggest the beauty and movement of natural forms, My UFO offers the artist’s view of more alien terrain.
