Suiro Tea is currently hosting an exhibition at the Siddhartha Art Gallery to endorse the fusion of ceramic art and tea culture in Nepal. Each of the art pieces displayed at the exhibition is cautiously hand-carved by Gopal Kalapremi Shrestha.
The combined pallet of ceramic art and tea culture witnessed at the exhibition defines a remarkable sense of place, history and time. Exploring through the exhibition, exotically crammed catholic varieties of tea reflect their organic aroma right from their rigorous processing.
The major highlight of the event is the wide selection of tea, including matcha, lemongrass tea, lavender tea, chamomile tea, and rose tea, all freshly brewed with traditional methods in traditional equipment.
Speaking at the exhibition’s opening day on July 1, the legendary artist Gopal Kalapremi shared, “The satisfaction of working with mud and presenting it as a meaningful structure is not comparable to any other entity.”
And rightly so, the cordiality and texture of each ceramic art carved cautiously by Shrestha tells an interesting story.
Urging the need for traditional conservation, he added, “Each of us is responsible for conserving our traditional art and value as they can be a massive national asset.”
Suiro Tea invites all art enthusiasts and tea pioneers to the ART|TEA|NATURE exhibition at the Siddhartha Art Gallery, where you will get to enjoy a traditional tea ceremony and brunch as you absorb the artistic wealth of tea, art, and culture. The exhibition runs until July 10 and is free for all visitors.
