A fantastic interview with the 15th generation Raku Grandmaster, going all the way back to the times of the legendary Sen No Rikyu who solidified the aesthetic of the Tea Ceremony and The Way of Tea.
Some of the answers echo what 11th Generation Tea Master, Ohi Toshio (大樋年雄) said in his workshop I attended. Tradition & Innovation. Expectations vs Dreams & Desires. It’s a very deep and rich subject.
Please enjoy the find.
