This basket from Northern China is made of burled wood, which has been appreciated by Chinese artists, poets and calligraphers for its unusual grains and forms for thousands of years. Like scholars' rocks, burled objects—with spontaneous, wild beauty—inspire creativity. This basket form burl has a wonderful sculptural shape and a well-worn, warmly patinated surface that calls to be touched.
