当社中初釜で使ったお道具をまた拝見する機会がありました。

【唐津茶碗】

唐津の沓型片身替茶碗(掛分け)で大分時代が入っているものです。

This is an old Karatsu bowl in the “kutsu” (shoe) shape with two-tone glaze (white on one side, black on the other).  The two-tone glaze finish is called “katamigawari” or “kakewake.”

桃山時代に流行した着物のデザインで、右半身と左半身、および袖の左右の模様や色合いなどの変わっている衣服のことを片身替といったことに由来するのかも知れません。

Maybe the name came from the type of kimono that was popular during the Momoyama Period known as Katamigawari: right and left sides of the garment, and right and left sleeves are in contrasting fabrics.
