16th International Small Form Porcelain Exhibition “Consolation” Riga Porcelain Museum 16.12.2022.-05.02.2023.

“Together We Can Do It Again

Theme: “Achieving balance in life starts with the first step. Falling is the next step, and getting up is the next. A word of encouragement or a helping hand provides a sense of  “I can do it”. Nature’s treatment is holistic. Only as long as we are together and constructive can we gather the destroyed again and again. We can stand up. The feeling of knowing that we can rebuild the ruins is the greatest consolation. Only together we can do it again”

…Hemân ağlayı geldim âleme ağlayı gitdim ben…San ol nîlüferim kim suda bitdim suda yitdim ben

I’m like a lotus, sprouted in water and withered in wather… I came to the world crying and left crying (Rehâyi)


The International Tea Bowl Competition 和敬清寂: Respect:

The Way of Tea was based on four principles (和 敬 清 寂): harmony, respect, purity and tranquility. (…) Respect meaning sincerity of the heart, which allows us to be open to the surroundings, people, nature, while respecting their dignity.(…) In everyday life this rule influences our contacts with other people. We stop seeing the externals and go deeper into human hearts and the essence of all things which we encounter in our environment. In those situations we are building a connection with the whole world that we live in.
