The Exhibition of Teaware and Tea Art with Oriental Aesthetic

China Cultural Center in Den Hang

The review of history can find the countless ties between Chinese tea culture and porcelain. Appreciating tea is not only focused on the shape, color, aroma, and taste of tea, but also pays attention to the texture and design of teawares. The teapot is a container of tea, and tea is a way of nurturing the teapot. Over time, teapots have become more than a functional vessel for brewing tea, and have taken on a new role as collectible pieces of art. Different types of tea matches different teapots. Inside of the pot is tea; outside of the pot is tea art. 

The exhibition of Teaware and Tea Art with Oriental Aesthetics will discover ancient teaware range, which includes gold, sliver, copper, iron, tin, stone, jade pots, and porcelains, etc. to show the distinctive designs and superb skills of artisan.
