Virtual Conference: Path of the Teabowl, October 22-23, 2021
A teabowl is essential for the preparation and consumption of the finely powdered, whipped green tea known around the world today as matcha. Originating in China and developed in Korea and Japan, teabowls have been a special category of ceramic vessel for more than a thousand years. Today they capture the imagination of potters around the world, both as utensil and as sculpture.

On the occasion of the Alfred Ceramic Art Museum exhibition Path of the Teabowl, this conference explores the definitions, histories, and contexts of teabowls.
