Name: Tea Scoops
Time Period: Momoyama
Material: wood
Features: Three different type of tea scoops. All of them are representations of a different
personality. Daishin scoop - more robust and hopeful (thickest one closest to us), Rikyu - more
delicate yet firm (middle), Kamon - more relaxed and generous (the one in the back).
Rikyu - made use of unlikely objects from near and far in his wabi tea practice, the tea
bowl is a central implement in the tea service and until this time, chinese black jian-ware
bowls w/sophisticated designs were the norm and favored in japanese tea, however rikyu
decided to creatively use korean ido pieces as tea bowls, it was revolutionary for both
him and his contemporaries, went against the norm with his principles of using something
that is imperfect and in danger of being disposed with and giving it a new purpose and in
a sense being reborn. This broke many rules of the past and it opened our eyes by making
us see these old objects as new.
