Cha and Ryoka
The Temporal Art of Tea Drinking
Nalata Nalata is pleased to announce a special exhibition of ceramic teaware by Masanobu Ando. This is our second exhibition with the artisan. Ando has always been fascinated with tea culture and is a trained tea master. His works are often influenced by this cross-disciplinary background and most noticeably materialize in his richly textured teaware for everyday use. The exhibition coincides with the recent launch of his collaborative book with confectionary artist Miho Mizoguchi of Kokonotsu, entitled Cha and Ryoka. Tentatively, the exhibition will open with a confectionary and tea ceremony performed by Ando, Covid-19 restrictions dependent.
Further details to be announced in regard to this upcoming exhibition.
