“Mugen” was not only be an exhibition, but a new technique to prepare tea. It will included a Ryurei style tea ceremony (using table & chairs instead of sitting on the traditional Tatami mat) and Pottery Northwest invited the public to participate. Everything for the ceremony; tools, a hot water heater, sweets, are hidden inside a 30” ceramic mountain. The inspiration for this work comes from the beautiful Sand Mountains at Kamigamo shrine in Kyoto, Japan.
