part 2 of the québec teaware competition: the ‘chawan’ winner

This year the Camellia Sinensis Tea House in Quebec, ran a ceramics competition to find the best, locally made tea-ware.  As part of their prize package the winners got to have their ceramic creations stocked in the Camellia Sinensis Tea House and featured on their website.

There were a three of different categories in this tea-ware competition:

  1. teapot and teacup
  2. chawan
  3. art and innovation

In the “chawan” category the first prize went to  M. Allan Putterman. For the spirit, simplicity and quiet strength that his pieces radiate; and his precise adherence to the traditional “Way of Tea”.

A huge Merci beacoup! goes out to Kevin and François from Camellia Sinensis for sharing these photos with me. You can also read an interview I did with Kevin here, in this interview he talks about buying black tea, tea culture in Quebec and about his favourite tea memories.
