Upcoming Events

Hanaire made by Shofu Kai ceramists of the Hawaii Potters' Guild

This exhibit of traditional hanaire is presented by Shofu Kai, a group of ceramists at the Hawaiʻi Potters’ Guild who have been studying together to learn about the artistry of utensils used in the Japanese tea ceremony, a cornerstone of Japanese culture.

The hanaire (flower vase) with chabana (flowers) and ojiku (scroll) are prominently displayed in the alcove of a tea room.  Each guest in a tea ceremony visits the alcove and respectfully views these tea utensils prior to the tea ceremony (sadou).  As such, the hanaire plays a very important role in sadou. 

This exhibit is available to view in the magazine lobby of the Library and behind the reference desk during regular library hours.
