The Teabowl

Presenter: Meghen Jones, Associate Professor of Art History and Guest Curator, Path of the Teabowl.

What is a teabowl? How did it become an iconic ceramic art form? Come hear about the Alfred Ceramic Art Museum's exhibition Path of the Teabowl, from its thousand-year-old bowls that Zen Buddhist monks drank from in China, to contemporary vessels that break new ground in form and concept.
