dc: JAPAN



 For a long time now I am interested in 



 
the vanitas... the becoming and passing away 
(f. i. you can see some analogue photo stills here which I made in ~ 2005)

Many years earlier my later husband J and I joined a Japanese tea ceremony.
At that we even learned about to admire
茶碗 ... the tea cup: we held it in our hands, lifted it at eye level and turned it to look at carefully from every angle, felt the surface, the material, praised the fine colour.

Some days after the ceremony J went to a pottery and
order some tea cups according to his instructions:




My tea cup is battered now but I still love it! I coloured the tracks simple in gold.
Maybe after an idea of 侘寂 ... Wabi-sabi, the aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection...



it makes me humbly and grateful

joyful and happy
to join you at this drawing challenge again after a long break. Our host is Nadine, my sweet Nadeschda, and her theme is JAPAN.

Please visit her fabulous place for more!
Wish you a fine weekend!



we are still moving...
