September 8th – Tea and readings

“For a ceramic artist, form is a vessel for the spirit.  Fire – volatile and sacred in many cultures – is the alchemy that brings it alive.  The artist’s intentions, finger marks, and dreams all ignite in the kiln.   When we invite hand-made art into our everyday lives – in our morning coffee, our afternoon tea with friends – we find the stillness and beauty of the present moment: meditative, ritualistic, reverential, and sacred.”   – Ming Yuen-Schat 

On September 8th, at 2 pm, we are reading and drinking from an art exhibit – Chalice – which includes 100 porcelain and celadon vessels of different shapes and sizes.  Pick your favorite right off its velvet pad, turn it in your hands, have a cup of tea.  Sit back and listen to readings from Ed Lin, Anelise Chen and me as we reflect on sacredness and spirituality in our society.

While you are there, visit 50 artists’ studios as part of the Brooklyn Museum’s Go Project.  Preview the Asian American Arts Alliance’s Locating the Sacred Festival.  For the full day’s program at the NARS studios in Brooklyn, check out this flyer.
