Event description

Description

In this talk the Leach Pottery is proud to present Dr Bonnie Kemske, author of the new book The Teabowl: East & West, who will look at the context of the teabowl as it arose in chanoyu, Japanese tea ceremony, and the changes it has undergone through its history.

Including images of famous teabowl styles, such as Raku and Oribe, with discussion about the cultural contexts of such legendary bowls. The talk will then move forward to the 20th and 21st centuries when this iconic ceramic form travelled from Japan to Europe and the Americas, and became ubiquitous in contemporary ceramics. Considering the losses and gains made when contemporary studio ceramicists appropriated the teabowl, Dr Kemske will ask ‘are contemporary teabowls still teabowls?’.

This is a free talk organised by the Leach Pottery, St Ives. Signed copies of 'The Teabowl: East & West' will be available to purchase on the day.
