The MFA and WAM
A fortunate bit of synchronicity, the Worcester and Boston Museum both have shows of Japanese tea ceremony ware. The tea caddies, water containers, and tea bowls are all here. Another coincident is they both have pieces by Bernard Leach and his Japanese associates. Mr. Leach is the first westerner to discuss and try Raku pottery and is considered the grandfather of the modern pottery movement.
