(2) 四方棚・筒茶碗・絞り茶巾・総飾り/Yoho’udana・Tsutsujawan・Shibori-chakin・So’ukazari

こちらも先週した四方棚の総飾りと変わらないのですが、「丸卓と違う」ことをおさらいするため行われました。ちょっとひねりを加えて筒茶碗と絞り茶巾でお点前がされました。

Yes, it is the same as the yoho’udana soukazari done last week – but it was practiced again to stress the point that it is different from the marujoku so’ukazari.  To add a couple of twists, a tsutujawan was used, and an extra step of shibori-chakin was added.

ところで絞り茶巾のタイミングは冬と夏では違いますね。冬はお茶碗を温めるため茶筅通し中お湯をお茶碗にいれたまま、夏はお茶碗を冷ますため茶筅通し後お湯をお茶碗から捨てた後ですね。
By the way, the timing for doing shibori-chakin is different for winter and summer, isn’t it?  In winter, while the hot water is still in the bowlduring chasen to’ushi to warm up the bowl, and in summer, after the hot water is discarded from the bowl following chasen to’ushi to cool off the bowl.
津軽七々子塗平棗・赤楽筒茶碗
Tsugaru Nanako-nuri Hira-natsume/Aka-raku Tsutsujawan

魚の卵が集まっているように見えるところから、七々子塗(ななこぬり)と名付けられたそうです。木地の漆が乾かないうちに菜種を蒔き、乾いてから菜種を払い落とすと一粒一粒種の取れたところに輪状の突起ができます。その上に色漆を何回も塗り重ねて研ぎ出して作られるのが七々子塗とのこと。津軽は4年程前に亡くなられた先生の先生であったM先生のお里でした。

The finish looks like there is a cluster of fish eggs – hence the technique was named: Nanako (multitude of kids) nuri (lacquer).  A layer of lacquer is applied to the wood base, and while the lacquer is wet, oil plat seeds are sprinkled on top.  Once the lacquer is dry, the seeds are removed, thus leaving ring-shaped protrusions where seeds used to be.  Layers in color lacquer are applied (and polished after each application) many times until it becomes the finished product.  It is from the Tsugaru region of Japan – the hometown of Mrs. M, our teacher’s original teacher who passed away about 4 years ago.
