Ikeda Iwao is an innovative Japanese artist specialising in traditional bamboo craft, lacquerware, and tea utensils. Inspired by his father Ikeda Hyoa II who studied under the tea ceremony master Masuda Donno, Ikeda Iwao started his career in bamboo art at the age of 10 and later became an apprentice to the master Akaji Yusai, a designated Living National Treasure in lacquerware. In 1963, Ikeda graduated from Tokyo University of Arts with a major in lacquer art.
Ikeda became an established artist in his own right and in 2013 and 2014, Ikeda held his solo exhibitions in Germany at the Museum fur Ostasiatische Kunst and the Museum of Lacquer Art respectively. His work has been included in various museum exhibitions worldwide, including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London (inv. no. FE.29:1 to 4-2001) , the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (inv. no. 2019.425.18a–c), and the Cleveland Museum of Art (inv. no. 1993.201).
