1月24日のお稽古・Lesson on Jan. 24

(1)組合点四方棚(濃茶): Kumi’awasedate with Yoho’udana (ko’icha)

組合点は、建水が特別なもの(名物、由緒あるもの等)の場合にされるそうです。点前の前の仕組みは茶筅飾りとほぼ同じですが、茶入を入れた茶碗を建水にのせて棚前に飾りますので亭主は何も持たずに茶室に入ります。

Kumi’awasedate is practiced when kensui is something special – an item of renowned fame or distinguished history.  The setup before the otema’e begins is almost identical to chasen kazari, except that the bowl with cha’ire inside is then placed on top of kensui, and these three items are displayed in front of the shelf.  The host therefore enters the tea room empty handed.

しかし、今日の水指は塗蓋ではありませんので茶杓は水指の上ではなく茶碗の上にあります。

However, because the mizusashi‘s lid is not a lacquer lid today, the chashaku is placed on the bowl, rather than on the mizushashi.

(2)総飾り・四方棚(薄茶): So’ukazari with Yoho’udana (usucha)

総飾りは何回か丸卓でお稽古しましたが四方棚では初めてです。お道具の配置が少し変わります。総飾りは薄茶席で亭主が更に来客を予定している際道具を棚に残しておくお点前だそうです。なるほど建水以外はすべてお棚にありますね。

So’ukazari (full display) has been practiced a few times in the past with marujoku (a round shelf) – but this is the first time with yoho’udana (a square shelf).  The placement of utensils is slightly different.  So’ukazari is said to be done when the host is expecting the arrival of more guests later for usucha (light tea), thus leaving the utensils he will need later on the shelf.  Indeed, the utensils – except for kensui – are all there.
