“Chaguruma and form afterword and Tools of Tea”

Oct 09, 2018 | Event 



Taking a cup of tea again, it seems to be an event of “Earth, Water, Leaves, Sun and Fire”, feeling fresh appeal to tea, I started to make teaware and tea pleasant tools and “Chaguma and subsequent forms and tools of tea”.

When I noticed, it seemed to me that there were a lot of clothing, food and dwelling “Earth, Water, Leaves, Sun and Fire”.

Among them, the role of fire and water is large, it is too wide to clean up with the word of natural material, it is natural, it feels difficult to see.

Therefore, I would like you to enjoy “Fire, Water and Plants”with tea and sweets during the exhibition.

The background was the appearance of “Cha-rry” shaped like a trunk and “Cha-unter” which can play tea on river moistened the senses and heart of guests.
