Tea Library Pt Iii By Christopher Shaw, With Red Square/红四方 李桂田
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Previous iterations of ceramicist Christopher Shaw's Tea Library installation have combined images, wood, clay and cloth to create a conceptual archive of aesthetic experiences inspired by tea. Rooted in global tea traditions, Shaw’s Tea Library series explores how tea culture evolves over time, the intricate cross-cultural influences at play and the development of a uniquely Northwest tea aesthetic.
The gallery will also be displaying a selection of elegant, contemporary tea ware by artists including Richard Brandt (Portland), Arun Sharma (Australia), Crimson Lotus Tea (Seattle) and more!
