丸卓・Marujoku

Leave a comment

桐木地の丸卓は利休好みなのだそうです。二本の柱が天板と地板の内側にあり、地板の裏には低い三つの足があります。利休が酒樽を使って棚にしたのが始まり、という一説もあるそうです。

Marujoku with unfinished paulownia wood is reportedly Rikyu’s favorite.  It has two columns between the top and bottom shelves, and the bottom has three feet.  There is a theory (among others) that Rikyu made his first marujoku with a sake barrel.

丸卓の底板三つ足ですが、炉・風炉と季節で向きが変わるとのことです。炉の季節は1つ足が手前になりますが、風炉の季節は風炉の1つ足が手前に来るので、変化をつける為丸卓は足2つを手前にするそうです。

Speaking of marujoku‘s three feet at the bottom, the direction changes depending on the season: ro and furo.  In the ro season, the single foot is facing the front, but in the furo season, the two feet come to the front to avoid doing the same thing with the furo, which has the single leg facing the front.

木地の丸卓の場合は柄杓の合を伏せて飾ります。

If marujoku is made of unfinished wood, hishaku is displayed with the cup facing down.
