...to London where tea book club Founder Kyle wordington reviews the tea bowl east and West, authored by Dr Bonnie Kimsky, a ceramic artist for the past thirty years, writer, curator a long time student of the Japanese tea ceremony. In this book my aim is to tell the story of the t bowl from the point of view of a ceramicist and a long time but ratic student of the risen school, one of the many schools of tea ceremony in Japan. My intention is to give a sense of the t bows US history, law and context, and to explore its meaning in Japan and beyond. And that's a quote from the t bowl East and west by Bonnie Kemski. Hello, I'm Kyle Whittington, founders t book club. That quote from the very beginning...

...of the book really highlights what this wonderful book by Bonnie Kemski is about. It's a very personal, human look at an object and subject, the t bowl, which can often be talked about in an all too esoteric or intensely academic way. What Bonnie succeeds so well in doing with her book is to fuse the academic and Esoteric context of the t bowl with her personal experience as both a caramecist and student of tea into a highly digestible book full to the Brim with stunning images of all sorts of t bowls, from the ancient and treasured to stunnying contemporary bowls and, well, frankly, the wild and wacky. It's rare to find a book where the history of such an iconic and complex object is so well told that it is pleasurable to read. academically sound and personable Bonnie reaches out to us the reader to engage and explain. The story. Law and technicalities of the t bowl are told through her lens, through her experiences. The history, contexts and details are explored in such a way that they are never stopped. Rather, the facts, named, dates,...

...et Cetera, are woven through a narrative that draws us into the world of the t bowl, giving us a foundation from which to explore beyond the t balls traditional tea room realm into the Contemporary Art Gallery World of its iconic form. Through her exploration of touch and how we engage with an object on the physical and spiritual level, Bonnie introduces that most elusive and yet intrinsic element of the t ball, how it feels in our hands. Being new to the t bowl world, already a devotee, the importance of connecting with the ball comes through well and it's explained in a way that makes you stop, think and question our own experiences of the t bowls in particular, and other ceramics too. As the title suggests, the book is a Balance Between East and West, and Bonnie explores this not just in the context and place of the t bowl and how we experience it, but also the techniques and approaches to creation of t bawls, shape, glaze, decoration, texture, structure, material and usability or not are all explored from both sides. The approach...

...of potters and examples of their respective works are used to illustrate, both in the narrative and in pictures, the comparisons and points Bonnie makes throughout the book. However, the one thing that many of us would have found invaluable would be a bibliography or compendium of potters and their work that appear in the text and in pictures, as keeping track of names and works was quite challenging at times. All in an excellent and stunning book that should be welcomed onto any tea bookshelf.
