BIO/CV

Ebana Misaki is the youngest professional bamboo artist in Japan. She exhibits in theJapan Traditional Craft Arts Exhibitions. Ebana graduated from the Sado School where she learned three years of basic bamboo art training under professional bamboo artists Kawano Shoko and Honma Hideaki. She now spends two weeks out of each month in Tokyo studying further under Tanaka Kyokusho. Ebana still follows her teachers’ technical styles, yet she has quickly adapted these techniques for her own elegant, classic forms that are uniquely her own. Her technical control and finishes are remarkable considering that she has only worked with this material for a few years.
