Tea and the sharing of tea is celebrated by many cultures in very diverse and often ritualistic ways. Tea drinking habits can be found worldwide. After water, it is the most widely consumed drink in the world. In conjunction with Antipodean Encounters, Western Australian ceramicists celebrated tea ware and food as a central point of cultural dialogue, presenting their vessels alongside loaned collections of Taiwanese tea ceremony sets.
Participating artists: Claire Ng, Melissa Statham, Bernard Kerr, Jenny Kerr, Lee Woodcock, Dee Parker, Emma Vinkovic, Alison Brown, Rie Yamauchi, Megan Evans, Amanda Harris, and Denise Brown.
