炉の長板・Naga’ita for Ro

Leave a comment

長板は風炉や水指などをのせる長方形の板で、大棚の扱いがされます。台子の天板をはずし地板のみを使ったのが始まりだそうです。大きいものは風炉用、小さいものは炉用です。(兼用のサイズもあります。)

Naga’ita” is a rectangular board for placing items, such as a furo, a mizusashi, etc.  It is treated as an o’odana (large shelf).  It is said to have started when the top board of a da’isu was removed and only the bottom board was used.  A large naga’ita is for a furo, and a small one is for a ro.  (There is also a size for use with both.)

炉の場合は濃茶薄茶とも諸飾りをして使います。(上写真は薄茶諸飾り。)

When used with a ro, morokazari is done whether serving ko’icha or usucha.  (The photograph above shows the morokazari setting for usucha.)
