Major Teabowl Exhibition in Oxford,24 October - 20 November 2014

Posted on 29 August 2014, under Uncategorized

The teabowl, or chawan, is at the heart of the Japanese tea ceremony – an object of beauty, simplicity and contemplation. Taking this as its inspiration, this exhibition presents a remarkable variety of teabowls and small vessels, with some 300 pieces by more than 60 makers from all parts of the world. These range from traditional pieces by legendary Japanese and British potters to contemporary vessels – functional and conceptual – by leading European ceramists. On show at Oxford Ceramics Gallery from 24 October to 16 November 2014, the exhibition is complemented by an exciting programme of events at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.

In May 2014, London Bubble Theatre Company was awarded a Daiwa Foundation Award to support our project The Grandchildren of Hiroshima. Following the success of our Grandchildren of the Blitz project in 2011 – in which we drew upon the stories and experiences of elders that survived the Blitz to create an intergenerational, community production – we wanted to use the experiences of this project to undertake a parallel project in Hiroshima.
