In this third lecture of our series, we will look at the black Raku ware tea bowls preferred by the 16th-century tea master Sen no Rikyū and how they came to be seen as embodying the essence of Japanese "tea taste" ever since.
The series "Masterworks of Japanese Tea Tradition" is presented in conjunction with the Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Centre. All lectures are presented by Maiko Behr of SaBi Tea Arts.
SaBi Tea Arts is managed by Maiko Behr, a translator specializing in Japanese arts and certified instructor of Chanoyu (Japanese tea ceremony) in the Omotesenke tradition and Kōdō (Japanese incense ceremony) in the Senzan Goryū tradition.
