名残の道具・Utensils for Nagori

10月は名残の季節です。

October is the season of nagori.

名残の茶事は性格上、本来が侘びている。そのため、茶室でも障子が少々黒くなっていても張り替えはしないとか、ちょっとぐらい破れていても切り貼りで済ますとか、辛抱しておく。焼物に普通青竹を使うところも、白竹で行く。向付でも同じものを揃えて出すんやのうて、わざと不揃いな「寄せ向」にする。お茶碗でも、繕いがあっても名残では使える。

Chaji in the season of nagori is rustic by its nature.  In the tearoom, therefore, shoji screens may have become less white, but they are left untouched.  Holes may be simply patched.  No elaborate repair works are done.  Generally, green bamboo sticks are used with yakimono (grilled item), but white bamboos are used instead.  Dishes for muko’uzuke are not matching as usual, but deliberately mismatched as “yosemuko’u” (random muko’u).  Even chawan with repairs is suitable for use for nagori.
