Japan Creative Centre (JCC), Embassy of Japan in Singapore, Chado Urasenke Tankokai Singapore Association, and Water and Ink Singapore Pte Ltd are delighted to present an exhibition entitled ‘Chado ~ The Spirit of the Way of Tea ~’. This exhibition features the utensils used in chado and by extension, its history and underlying spirit, culture and indeed way of life which we call the Way of Tea. There will also be a series of ink paintings by local artist Mr Stanley Chng, providing a window on his perspective of zen masterpieces of Hasegawa Tohaku, a contemporary of Sen-no-Rikyu in the Momoyama or pre-Edo period.

Besides the exhibition, there will also be workshops and a tea ceremony demonstration. Do not miss this unique opportunity to experience another side of Japanese tea ceremony!

About the exhibition:

Among Japanese traditional craft, tea utensils are particularly known to represent the skills and techniques of their craftsmen. Through this exhibition, we showcase a variety of artefacts ranging from pottery in the form of tea bowls (chawan) and tea containers (cha-ire), to lacquerware such as makie used in tea caddies (chaki) and kaiseki utensils, as well as fabric (kireji) such as those used to wrap the items above and to mount hanging scrolls.

Since the time of founder Sen-no-Rikyu, the hanging scroll (kakemono) has occupied an important position among the assortment of tea utensils, often conveying the central theme of the gathering. We feature a series of ink paintings by local artist Mr Stanley Chng, providing a window on his perspective of zen masterpieces of Hasegawa Tohaku, a contemporary of Sen-no-Rikyu in the Momoyama or pre-Edo period.

This will be accompanied by a photo exhibition of confectionery served in tea gatherings, representing the key seasonal events in Chado
