The Stylist Alphabet: J is for…
J is for…
Some years ago I visited an exhibition in New York about Japanese tea ceremonies. I spent the afternoon immersed in the details of this incredible ritual and almost immediately started buying similar small utensils and objects with very precise functions. Japanese charcoal is made from bamboo and oaks such as nara, kunugi and kashi. It has a high concentration of minerals and carbon and is used for water purification in the tea ceremony, the bath and even the rice cooker. Simple pieces such as this are elevated by their story or history of usage.
