The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present new work by American sculptor Tom Sachs. Known for his dry wit, this modern day chawan’ya observes, “There comes a time in every Jewish, middle-aged, college-educated American man’s life when he realizes that Japan is where it’s at… Mourning the loss of spirituality in our capitalist environment, we admire Tea’s integration of humility, prosperity, and spirituality.” For Sachs, that has meant making chawan, or teabowls, in addition to learning chanoyu, the way of tea. In this exhibition, Sachs has filled several tea cabinets with chawan and highlighted a number of “heroes,” individual chawan that he sets apart as embodying a certain heighted “thingness.” Read more.
