[Culture through Antique] Tsukuba City Chat Cafe

2015年7月3日のつくばCity Chat Cafeでは、青絵付けの磁器について皆さんとお話ししました。それぞれの世代・文化の意見や経験を伺ってみると、磁器の透き通る白と、中東で用いられた青色との間の関連性についての推測に至りました。参加者全員が意見を出し、積極的に議論に参加することで、様々な事例について知ることもできました。IAIのイベントがきっかけとなり、多くの人が意見を開き、近づいていくことができれば幸いです。

During Tsukuba regular City Chat Cafe held on 3rd of July 2015 interesting discussion about emergence of blue porcelain took place. After sharing of opinions and experience in between generations and cultures, we came to an extraordinary assumption about possible connection of pure white color of China and thick blue color commonly used in Middle East. All the members of discussion could express their opinion, actively participate in discussion and get to know more about different cultures in vivid examples. We hope that this time too International Antique Institute could make the borders closer and people opener.
