Dai Ichi Arts, Ltd. is delighted present our October exhibition “Refining Water: Mizusashi & The Art of the Japanese Tea Ceremonny."
The Mizusashi is a fresh water vessel used in the Japanese tea ceremony. Typically an earthenware or stoneware jar, the water jar is an aesthetic anchor for the tea gathering. They might be pre-situated in the tea room prior to the ceremony, or carried in by the host or hostess during the ceremony. Coming in a wide range of shapes and sizes, our selection of 20th and 21st century Mizusashi spotlights tea traditions as a longstanding location of artistic expression and tastemaking in the history of Modern Japan. We warmly welcome you to visit our gallery to see a selection of pieces, featuring Ueba Kasumi, Suzuki Goro, Kato Tokuro, and many more.
