To highlight its permanent collection, the museum presents Seasons, a series of rotating exhibitions that underscores the importance of the seasons in Chinese and Japanese art and culture.
In this exhibition, a dozen examples show how tea utensils embody changes in weather. Rough stoneware conveys warmth, for example, while porcelain is cool to the touch.
