From June 20 to 25, Kanazawa University International Student Center hosted a Chaki Exhibition at Ishikawa International Exchange Salon. This Exhibition started in 2003, and has been held every year since then.
In this exhibition, 26 tea bowls and art works were displayed, which entertained visitors. Under the guidance of 11th Ohi Chozaemon (Ohi Toshio), a visiting professor and a potter of Ohiyaki international students from 8 different countries/area and several Japanese students crafted these art works. The art works were praised for distinct designs.
As part of this exhibition, international students held a tea ceremony on June 24. These students have been learning Japanese tea ceremony from Sōki Matsui, a master of tea ceremony of Urasenke school. This was a great opportunity for the students to show their mastery from the lessons.
