Event contents

Intellect is ho. Feel, and ho.

In background that Japanese industrial arts greatly develops, and unfolded, there is relation with tea ceremony. After modern times when structure way called writer came up, superior work = "container of tea ceremony" which made full use of various material has been brought about. It may be said that they expressed new thought by sonotokidokino writer like mirror to project the times on. Unlike convenient so-called tea service set which focused on functionality and utility assuming use, convey thought by personal sense of beauty; "there are a lot of unit-related things turning up which there is which were going to propose originality in molding and design as "caliber" of expression. In addition, it was not from structure hand, and industrial arts developed by new use = "choice" by sense of beauty from master. It is figure that it should be said with the origin that has been established in the world of tea ceremony that master chooses "container" as for it variously and enjoys.

We squeeze focus to "container" in conjunction with tea ceremony that industrial artist of the close present age including holder of an important intangible cultural property brought about and investigate book exhibition about flexible thought and molding through approximately 60 works. It will be to be opportunity to think about charm of "choice" as pleasure of tea ceremony at the same time.
