#Inspiration . “The ‘hand-crafted art of ordinary people’ (民衆的な工芸 (minshū-teki-na kōgei)). . Yanagi Sōetsu discovered beauty in everyday ordinary and utilitarian objects created by nameless and unknown craftsmen. ‘Utilitarian objects made by the common people are beyond beauty and ugliness’. . Criteria of Mingei: * made by anonymous crafts people * produced by hand in quantity * inexpensive * used by the masses * functional in daily life * representative of the regions in which they were produced’.” (Wiki) . . . Hamada, Leach, Kawai, and the philosopher Yanagi Soetsu were behind the Mingei (folk art) movement that was created in 1926 as a counterbalance to the industrialization of ceramics and the “snobbishness” of the world of tea ceremony ware. . #philosophy #behindeveryobjectisaphilosophy #teaclaylove #unearthed #unearthedlandoftherising #Mingei #folkart #mashiko #ShōjiHamada #pottery #artexhibition #clay #wrenthorpe #teaceremony #community #gathering #create #art #design #artinstallation #modernism #activist #teaceremonyisforeveryone #wearenature #plantmedicine
