Watercolor painting is popular because the materials are simple and cleaning up is easy, but it can be challenging because the artist must plan ahead. The key to making a good watercolor is to anticipate where the white areas will be because once painted, the color cannot be removed. The artist leaves the white paper as the highlights and layers more in the darker areas.

How does Kichizaemon Raku XV describe his approaching to deciding on the final form of his bowls?

While watching the documentary “Japan Spirit and Form” ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSP6Ec7kJbo ), answer the following 4 questions. Your answers should be at least 2 sentences for each question.

It introduces the aesthetic and history of Japanese tea bowls and the concept of wabi-sabi (a world view and aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection), and relates wabi-sabi to very different Western traditions. I’m hoping this might offer a refreshingly different perspective on life and our environment during these trying times!

At about the 20 minute mark, the documentary begins to describe glazes and later a “raku” firing technique. Keep watching!! It’s very interesting, and goes deeper into the philosophy of this approach to art-making, but we won’t be able to use those glazes or raku these this….

Does the nature of our busy, cluttered, fast-paced, consumerist, digitally oriented contemporary world make concepts of wabi-sabi more or less important?

Before starting your tea bowl assignment, it’s helpful to understand more about a traditionally Japanese aesthetic “Wabi- Sabi”,  which is closely linked to cultural traditions around tea -drinking and the creation of tea bowls which mirror this aesthetic.

Start by reading the short Richard Martin article on Wabi-Sabi, linked here as a PDF: RichardMartin,wabi-sabi.pdf

Next, check out additional images of objects and traditional tea bowls reflecting this aesthetic, linked here as a PDF: wabi-sabiimages.pdf

Now, answer the following questions, at least 2 sentences apiece, posted to Canvas:

1. In your own words, describe your current understanding of the wabi-sabi aesthetic.

2. Is this concept something that you find personally interesting or valuable? (There is no right answer to this question!)

3. Does the nature of our busy, cluttered, fast-paced, consumerist,….
