紀州漆器

Kishu Lacquer Ware

漆器

室町から戦国時代に現在の滋賀県付近の木地師の集団がこの地に住みついて、豊富な紀州ヒノキを木地に、木の椀の製造を始めました。

Wood turners settled in the vicinity of present day Shiga Prefecture during the Muromachi period (1392-1573) and the turbulent times before the end of the 16th century. These craftsmen started making wooden soup bowls using the plentiful supplies of Japanese cypresses (Chamaecyparis Spach) found locally. This led to the production of shibujiwan bowls, which were primed with the tannin-rich juice extracted from persimmons.

江戸時代後期に、落雷によって和歌山城の天守閣等が炎上し、多くの道具類が灰になってしまいました。

At the end of the Edo period (1600-1868), the tower of Wakayama Castle was destroyed when it was struck by lightening and much of the furniture was burnt to ashes. Records show that when the castle tower was rebuilt four years later, the chests and other cabinets, which had been lost in the fire, were remade. Further more, old books and chests dating back to the mid-19th century have also been discovered in town houses all over Wakayama Prefecture.
