惺斎・Seisai

Leave a comment

12月ですので、12代目のお家元惺斎について一筆します。惺斎は11代お家元碌々斎のご長男。明治39年(1906)に焼失した不審庵を再興されたそうです。歴代お家元の中ではお好みのお道具の数が一番多いとのことで、表千家から「看雲 惺斎お好み物集」という本が出版されています。昭和12年(1937)に75歳でお亡くなりになりました。

As it is December, a quick note about the 12th Iemoto (grand master), Seisai (惺斎).  He was the eldest son of the 11th Iemoto, Rokurokusai (碌々斎).  Fushin-an (不審庵)(“THE” tea house on the Omotesenke estate in Kyoto) burned down in 1906, and Seisai rebuilt it.  Each grand master has his “favorite” type of tea utensils, and out of all grand masters, Seisai has the most.  He had so many that Omotesenke has an entire book published about them.  He passed away in 1937 at 75.
