objects of display in a tokonoma

Post  dick benbow on Sat Jul 06, 2013 2:34 pm

last night i was at a welcoming salmon meal for presenters at a koi convention. One of the speakers presented the hosts of the meal with a beautiful tea cup that he had made and fired in a wood kiln. I was thinking that it would look nice in a toko presentation.
I'm trying to come to speed on tenpai and kusamono, but looking to grasp the rules on special items like this tea cup?

I understand how you'd put a picture from a scroll, bonsai and figure to make a scene. But how and when would you use somthing like a piece of pottery tht had special meaning....know someone out there has to have some thoughts or experience.

I PMed someone on another "parrish" and asked specifically how i would display the gift of a handmade and fired tea pot. learned that a haiku poem on a scroll and art object alone would be just fine. Prior to the use of bonsai as the main object of display, reverred objects like tea pots were used. So I thought I'd share that here
incase someone could use the history and possibility for a display.

I was thinking this haiku from Chiyo-ni might be appropriate as a topic to ponder with tea (o-cha)

A hundred different gourds
from the mind
of one vine

Nice haiku...perhaps this one too...
かはづ(かわず) かへる(かえる)
初蛙 遠蛙 夕蛙
or
一期一会....

I wanted to purchase an antique wooden sake jug while in Japan, for the same reason you explained above, but just did not have the money.
