Jill Fanshawe-Kato: Japanese Pottery for Food and Drink

The day will begin with an illustrated talk on Japanese Pottery for food and drink followed by lunch, a demonstration and hands-on activity based on Jill’s work.

With a focus on Japanese food and drink, this masterclass and talk will trace the influences which have contributed to this unique cuisine. In the tea ceremony, which reached its zenith in the 16th century, numerous small ceramic dishes presented on lacquer trays would be used in ceremonies lasting many hours and attended by nobility and rulers of the country.
