組合点(風炉)・Kumi’awasedate (Furo)

Leave a comment

以前組合点のお稽古を炉で何回かしましたが、風炉では久しぶりです。

We have previously practiced kumi’awasedate with ro a few times, but it has been quite some time with furo.

組合点は、建水が特別なもの(名物、由緒あるもの等)の場合にされます。点前の前の仕組みは茶筅飾りと同様棚に柄杓と蓋置、そして水指の蓋の上に茶杓、茶筅、茶巾を飾ります。そして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.  Just like chasen kazari, hishaku and futa’oki are placed on the shelf, and chashaku, chasen and chakin are displayed on top of the lid of mizusashi.  Then chawan 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.

風炉の場合と炉の場合で、道具三点(建水、茶碗、茶入)の扱いが違いますので気を付けましょう。

You should take note that how the three items (kensui, chawan, cha’ire) are handled differs between furo and ro.
