透木釜・Sukigigama

Leave a comment

It may vary depending on the school, but tabidansu and sukigigama are often used around April.  Sukigigama is a type of pot that does not use gotoku (a metal pedestal for the pot).  It is placed on the edge of the ro to hide the charcoal fire with the “wings” of the pot.  April is the last month for using the ro.  It gets warmer in April, and you feel like going outside without a heavy winter coat.  Therefore, in the tea room the charcoal fire is obscured out of consideration to the guests.  To create some space between the edge of the ro and the “wings,” pieces of wood (called sukigi) are used.

お流儀によっては使われる月が違うかもしれませんが、旅箪笥、透木釜などは4月頃によく使われます。透木釜は五徳を使わず、炉壇に掛けて炭の火を隠す釜です。4月は炉の最後の月。4月になると暖かくなり重い冬のコートを脱いで出掛けたくなる季節ですね。よってお茶室ではお客様へこの様な火を隠す心遣いをいたします。釜の羽と炉壇に透 き間を作る必要で、透木の板を使います。
