阿古陀・Akoda

Leave a comment

阿古陀茶器は「阿古陀形のお茶器」なのですが、天然忌でよく使われる如心斎写は内が黒塗で外は溜塗、蓋は梅木地となっています。阿古陀形とはカボチャの様な阿古陀瓜の形を模していることをいいます。(バントケーキにも似てますね。)

Akoda tea powder container is in the shape of an akoda melon.  The type often used for Ten’nen-ki is the favorite of Joshin-sa’i’s, which is lacquered black on the inside and tamenuri on the outside.  The lid is made of plum wood.  The akoda shape gets its name from akoda melon, which actually looks like a pumpkin.  (It also reminds me of a Bundt cake.)

阿古陀茶器は表千家に限って使うものではないそうです。阿古陀茶器そのものは各流派それぞれにお好みがあるそうで、梅木地の代わりに塗蓋や桑蓋を使ったもの、染付磁器の阿古陀茶器なども目にしたことがあります。

It is not only the Omotesenke School that uses akoda tea powder containers.  Different schools have their own preferred style of akoda.  Some have lacquered lids or paulowina wood lids – rather than plum wood.  There are also akoda made of blue and white porcelain.
