Chatō: Appreciating Japanese ceramics through tea
From the very beginnings of the practice of drinking powdered matcha tea in Japan, ceramics have played a central role in the enjoyment and appreciation of this traditional beverage. From exquisite imported Chinese tianmu (tenmoku), Korean celadons, and Vietnamese blue-and-whites, to rustic domestic wares from various regions throughout Japan, the ceramics used in the tea ceremony provide an endless variety of shapes and styles, while the tea room offers a space and an atmosphere for appreciating them quietly and contemplatively. The August workshop will explore the many varieties of Japanese ceramics that are used in the Japanese tea ceremony and how they are viewed and appreciated within the context of the tea room setting. As always, a slide presentation will be followed by tea in the tatami room.
