              ABOUT THE LECTURER:            

Mrs. Midori Inomata is the wife of the Consul General of Japan in San Francisco and the Honorary President of Satsuki-Kai 

 

ABOUT THE BONSEKI:

Bonseki is the art of portraying scenery by the ingenious arrangement of quartz sand, pebbles and  natural rocks (shaped like miniature mountains) on a black lacquer tray. Senno-Rikkyu, the Grand Master of the Tea Ceremony, was an enthusiastic follower of Bonseki. Bonseki enjoyed great popularity during the Edo Period, the time of the "Shogun." 

 

You are now invited to enjoy the ancient art of Bonseki, Japan's traditional miniature art displaying a world of seasonal beauty and nature depicted with the utmost delicacy.
