The Hatakeyama Collection, Tokyo
These two pieces I photographed at the Hatakeyama Collection in Tokyo when we were taken to see them on our first visit to Japan. This was also where we were first introduced to Chado, the Japanese Tea Ceremony. What a wonderful experience. The Celadon vase is Korean and, of course, the tea bowl is by the first Kenzan. Needless to say this was not the bowl we used for our introduction to the Tea Ceremony.
