Katrina Goldsaito, C'est Bon Clay & Cloth, and Jacob Palmer

Join us for a modern tea pouring led by artist Katrina Goldsaito, featuring ceramic works by Cassie Brown of C'est Bon Clay & Cloth with a live ambient soundtrack performed by Jacob Palmer. Inspired by the five classical elements of Indian Vastu Shastra and Buddhist philosophy—Earth, Wind, Water, Fire, and Void—this performative gathering meditates on the element of Water, mizu or sui in Japanese. Representing the fluid, flowing, formless things of the world, Water suggests change and adaptation. As we face uncertain futures, we must be attentive to nature's wisdom and observe our position within a greater whole, a fluid body.

All are welcome to attend the event for free. We offer a $15 suggested donation for ceremony participants in support of the contributing artists. With the purchase of a ceramic work by C'est Bon Clay & Cloth, participation is complementary.
