Tea Water Kensui
Masanobu Ando

$350.00 USD
  • Introduction

    I am a Tea Water Kensui. You know when something just doesn't hold water? Well, that's definitely not me. When you're done brewing, pour out the waste so you're left with only the best tasting tea.

     

  • Curator's Notes 

     

    Masanobu Ando is known not only for his ceramics but also for his mastery in the art of tea ceremony. He created this piece based on the traditional Japanese "kensui", into which either hot or cold water is poured after tea has been brewed and the bowl has been rinsed. The loose leaf tea collects onto the lid for easy separation and disposal. Normally an unobtrusive cylinder, kensuis are meant to be hidden from the eyes of guests. This one by Ando-san is worthy of display, with a sculptural shape and painterly glaze. Three small tabs extend from the interior of the vessel to hold the lid, which has an opening for steam to escape and ease of removal.

     

    Tea Water Kensui was curated by Angélique Chmielewski
