Ignore tradition, Simply enjoy the Way of Tea !
At the beginning of the long history of Chanoyu (Ceremonial tea culture), the practice of “The Way of Tea” was at the cutting edge of culture and hailed in a new wave of arts. People enjoyed their creativity and competed with each other to produce new ways of artistic expression and production.
Eventually the ‘cutting edge’ became tradition, and tradition gave way to strict rules. So much so, that there was no longer any room for creativity and experimentation.
Now, we at SHUHALLY would like to introduce to the wonderful people of Hong Kong, a new way of enjoying ‘The Way of Tea,’ set amidst the creativity and new designs of young artists in Japan.
What is presented here in this exhibition may be informed by the traditional, but everything here is created with a consideration for new ideas, new creativity, and a sense of play. We invite you to join us in experiencing the SHUHALLY style of Chanoyu, where rules are encouraged to be broken and the simplicity of enjoying tea is celebrated.
Shuhally – meanings “Shu – 守, The Fundamentals”, ” Ha – 破, Breaking of tradition” and “Lly – 離, Parting with Traditional wisdom”.
Founder and Tea master of SHUHALLY, Souryou Matsumura introduces chanoyu, way of tea, along with Noh Farce, Japanese Kimono, wagashi (Japanese sweets), and Pottery. His own room, Bunsaian (文彩庵) awarded Good Design in 2010.
