Sokiku Nakatani Japanese Teaware Collection

About this Collection

The Sokiku Nakatani Japanese Teaware Collection presents the ceramics, scrolls, and tea utensils collected and used by Sokiku Nakatani in her studies and as a teacher of Chado (the Way of Tea).

The 147 items in this Collection were donated to California State University, Sacramento in 2006 and are housed in the University Library’s Department of Special Collections and University Archives. The items in the Collection, because it was the personal collection of Sokiku Nakatani, demonstrate her level of expertise, interests, and aesthetics, and they also serve to promote understanding and interest in the study of Tea and in Japanese culture and design.
