Chinese Ceramics for Tea in Japan

Chinese Ceramics for Tea in Japan

March 8, 2014 – September 14, 2014

Museum: Freer Gallery of Art

Location: Gallery 6A

Acquired by Charles Lang Freer, these Chinese bowls, small jars, and other ceramics were used as tea utensils in 16th-century Japan as part of chanoyu, or the “art of tea.” Highlighting Chinese tea objects with long histories of use and admiration in Japan, this exhibition complements the Sackler Gallery's exhibition Chigusa and the Art of Tea on view through July 27, 2014.
