Here’s a little about the Exhibit –

The INTERNATIONAL CHAWAN EXPO project, traveling exhibitions started in 2005. The project was started by Mr. Lou Smedts as an open non-profit platform for the known and unknown artists
who share the same passion, making and using of a Chawan (a tea cup used in the traditional eastern tea ceremonies).

Lou Smedts says –
“If I put all the facts together, the most important data of this project are the friendship and the cooperation amongst the participants, all have grown in many ways. I would not have imagined harmony and cohesion in the group, assuming that all artists are individualists. It is this friendship and cooperation that ads the greatest value and respect for the project worldwide. This has to be Zen.”
