Tea Bowl Lecture

Last evening (03-01-2018), Dr. Bonnie Kenske (UK), artist, writer, and author of “The Tea Bowl: East and West”, presented the first of several gallery lectures here in the US at Lacoste Gallery (Concord, MA). I was unable to attend, but did watch it on the live Face Book stream, and what a pleasant surprise to see my chawan flash up on the screen!
