Location: not on view

Description

This tea set with orchids has a side-handled pot called a kyūsu, used for steeping, straining, and serving tea. Seifū Yohei III’s painting teacher, Tanomura Chokunyū (1814–1907), made a visual record of famous sencha events that shows how these kinds of porcelains fit with objects such as a stove and kettle to form a complete set of utensils for tea preparation, and with ensembles of decorative objects meant to inspire creativity.
