Leave a comment

小卓は風炉の季節に使います。地板とその上の棚板の間に建水を飾ることができ、その時には平建水を使います。お稽古で使ったのは桑小卓です。こちらは如心斎好みだそうです。桐小卓は吸江斎、溜塗は即中斎のお好みとのこと。

Kojoku (“small shelf”) is used during the season for furoKensui can be displayed between the bottom board and the board above it, and a “flat” kind (hirakensui) is used in that case.  We used “kuwakojoku” (mulberry kojoku) for our practice.  It is said to be Joshin-sa’i’s (7th Grand Master) favorite.  Kiri kojoku (paulownia kojoku) is Kyu’uko’u-sa’i’s (10th Grand Master), and tame-nuri finish (a lacquer technique to apply clear lacquer over the base layer) is Sokuchu’u-sa’i’s (13th Grand Master) favorite, respectively.

【濃茶】 天板中央に薄茶器、水指は棚板中央、そして棚前に茶入を置きます。

Ko’icha】 Usuchaki is placed in the middle of the top board.  Mizusashi is in the middle of the shelf board.  Cha’ire is in front of the shelf.

【薄茶初飾り】 薄茶器と水指だけです。

Usucha Shokazari (Mode 1)】 Only usuchaki and mizusashi are displayed.

【二飾り】 柄杓と蓋置が天板に置かれます。

Nikazari (Mode 2)】 Hishaku and futa’oki are on the top board.

【三飾り】 小卓特有の飾り方です。柄杓を左後の柱にもたせかけます。蓋置は地板中央です。三飾りでは建水を飾る場合と飾らない場合があります。

Sankazari (Mode 3)】 This display is unique to kojokuHishaku is leaning against the left/back pillar.  Futa’oki is on the bottom board in the middle.  The kensui may or may not be (optionally) displayed in sankazari (Mode 3.)

【総飾り】 茶器と茶碗を同時に両手で天板に置きつけます。三飾り同様建水を飾る場合と飾らない場合があります。

So’ukazari  (Full Mode)】 When the usuchaki and chawan are placed on the top shelf, they are placed at the same time with both hands.  Hishaku is displayed in the same way as sankazari (Mode 3).  The kensui may or may not be (optionally) displayed – the same as sankazari (Mode 3).
