蒲生氏郷 (賦秀)  Ujisato (Masuhide) Gamo’u (1556-1595)

利休七哲(りきゅうしちてつ)のひとり。

He is one of Rikyu’s 7 primary disciples – or Rikyu Shichitetsu.

氏郷は著名な道具を多数所有していました。長次郎作の赤楽茶碗「早舟」がそのひとつです。「早舟」はその異例な釉で知られ、長次郎の最高傑作とされています。秀吉が茶会に使いたいとの依頼を受け、利休がこの茶碗を早舟で送りました。利休はこの茶碗を氏郷に譲り、氏郷の後、のちのちに松平不昧が購入しました

Ujisato possessed a number of famous utensils.  He owned the red chawanHayabune” made by Chojiro, which, with its unusual glaze, is regarded as one of Chojiro’s finest.  Rikyu had once sent the chawan by an express boat (= hayabune) to Hideyoshi who wanted to use it in his tea party.  Rikyu gave it to Ujisato, and, after Ujisato, it was later purchased by Fumai Matsuda’ira.

黒楽茶碗「鉢開」、唐物茶入「鍋屋肩衝」も氏郷の所有でした。

Ujisato also owned the black raku chawanHachihiraki” and the Chinese cha’ire named “Nabeya Katatsuki.”
