A bronze vase naturalistically modeled as a bamboo culm by the Meiji Period metalwork master, Kyoto-based artist Jomi Eisuke. Jomi was known for his seamlessly hand-beaten copper technique and for fine, meticulous relief work. The artist went through great lengths to depict the nuances of the grass, as seen in the carved texture of the surface, nodes and fleshy base. This is Jomi Eisuke’s elegant representation of one of Japan’s key staples, bamboo—revered for its strength and resilience. Includes tomobako. Excellent condition with no restoration. Height: 12” Meiji Period, Japan
