17th Yunomi Invitational, Clay Akar, Iowa City

Late July 2023 Yunomi Invitational opens online only Friday at 10:00 AM CST. Show date TBD

Definition of Yunomi (U-No-Me): A cup with a trimmed or turned foot, without a handle. Unlike the more formal Chawan tea bowl, which is used during the Japanese tea ceremony, the Yunomi is made for daily (or informal) tea drinking. While a Chawan is not too tall and narrow for vigorous whisking of tea and is held with two hands, a Yunomi is taller and not as wide and used mostly to drink tea made with tea leaves and held with one hand.
