The emergence of bamboo as a high-level art form with named practitioners is a recent phenomenon. Robert Coffland, this country’s leading dealer in Japanese bamboo art, is on close terms with many of today’s most celebrated practitioners. In conversation with Joe Earle, Director of Japan Society Gallery, Coffland offers a unique perspective on the contemporary working environment, the domestic politics of craft associations and exhibitions, and the international world of art fairs and collectors.
