Chawans

Work in the making

I'm a fan of the Japanese aesthetics of wabi sabi. Wabi sabi started with the teaceremony in Japan. I love the chawans (tea cups) they use, see for instance the work of Akira Satake.

This year I have an exhibition at Theemaas in Rotterdam. A shop that sells coffee and tea from all over the world, with a small gallery in the back. I'm experimenting to see if I can make my own version of chawans. They are fun to make, but if I ever will reach the quality of Akira's work.....
