Rodmakers Gallery

Established in 2004, this gallery annually honors those individuals whose actions and deeds over a period of time have significantly contributted to the advancement of the craft of bamboo Rodmaking.  It is these individuals who have made it possible for people today to take up and pursue the craft following in their footsteps.  This Gallery is not just for famous rodmakers but for those who love the craft and share their knowledge.  This Gallery will also serve to let the new rodmaker know who has come before them in this great tradition.
