The chasen

This Summer 2007 I had great holiday in Japan (again) and this doesn't mean I did nothing, actually I did a lot of work, 78 CD's of pictures! As usual I did a lot of pictures of Tea Ceremony, Chanoyu or Sado. This is the chasen, is the brush to make the green tea into a thick froth, is made in bamboo, a single bamboo cut into a lot of very thin stems divided in two groups a circonference and a core, it resemble a lot to a brush for shave foam. Is very fragile but is a really beautiful object, simplicity and efficiency and beauty, only Japanese can do that all together.
