Takashi Miki: Bamboo in Kyoto Lecture ( Portland Japanese Garden)
On 9/20/2017

Takashi Miki will give a presentation on his craft and its beautiful and vivid history. As the fifth- and sixth-generation owners of Miki Bamboo shop, Takashi and his father Kiyoshi Miki continue the tradition of kyo-meichiku, a distinctly Kyoto way of cultivating bamboo and processing it into beautiful products. Miki Bamboo, founded in 1877, grows bamboo in its own company groves -- it is the master himself who chooses the stalks to be cut during the fall harvest. Roasting bamboo is a distinctive Kyoto tradition, one that requires precision and patience. It results in an exquisite surface lustre and durability not achievable through the faster, easier methods used elsewhere in Japan. It is Miki’s belief, passed down through generations, that one must consistently stand close to the bamboos from the very beginning to the final product in order to produce character in each and every one.
