The tea bowl (chawan) plays a significant role in the centuries-old Japanese tea ceremony (chanoyo). In ceramic art, fine artisan-chawan are held in high regard, sought after by collectors, and exhibited in museums.

Bryan McGrath will demonstrate each step in making a wheel-thrown tea bowl using the raku-firing technique, while discussing its importance to the tea ceremony and to his work. Having spent time in Japan, Bryan has his own tea ceremony stories to share.

Enjoy sushi, conversation, and a tour of the ceramics studio at the conclusion of the demonstration.
