part 3 of the québec teaware competition: the ‘art and innovation in teaware’ 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 “art and innovation” category the winner was awarded the prize for showing craftsmanship within the spirit of tea.  The first prize went to Mme Julie Lavoie. The judges loved that her work showed such strong personality and attention to detail.
