Probably the only tea hut in Norway, the little house under clouds and moon, «Un Getsu-an» in Japanese, has survived 20 years of shifting weather and harsh winters. Our ikebana class went on a trip to visit Svein Westad, musician and tea master, and Paula Fure, author and gallerist at gallery Åkern in Kongsberg. With fresh irises from the garden in a bamboo vase, the two tatami mat tea hut in their garden welcomed us for an intimate tea ceremony experience. These are a few snapshots from a lovely evening. Norwegian artist Mai-Bente Bonnevie is exhibiting in the old gallery building together with ikebana by Lisbeth Lerum. The evening ended with a koto concert in the Japanese country style room.
