I have begun the study of Chanoyu— Japanese Tea Ceremony. Initially I was drawn to learn more about the uses of fabric in the tea ceremony and in the process I am discovering an impermanent art form. In the ritual of whisking a bowl of tea, there is the intimate and the intricate. I have come full circle, returning to my formative experience at Oomoto in Kameoka, Japan.
