Teabowls in Boston

by Karen Mahoney of City by the Sea Ceramics

Boston will be hosting a number of events concerning teabowls in March, which I am super excited about.

On March 12, Lacoste Gallery in Concord opens the exhibit The Elusive Teabowl. The group show has some very exciting potters included, and kicks off the events of the next few days.

At the MFA, the exhibit An Unspoken Dialogue with Tea opened in February and runs through September. This show focuses on the tea ceremony itself, and presents a number of teabowls made of various materials. On March 13, the MFA is hosting A Day About Japanese Tea to compliment the exhibit. The lecture has many speakers, including Japanese potters Tsujimura Shiro and Suzuki Goro, and American potter Jeff Shapiro.

On March 14, Harvard Ceramics Department is hosting a workshop, The Elusive Teabowl.
The three potters from the MFA lecture will be hosting, as well as American potter Richard Milgram.

If you're interested in pottery or just like tea, I encourage you to check out some of these events. Maybe I'll see you there!
