Diagram of Chaire
I’m looking for a diagram showing the different shapes of chaire and their appropriate name. Ideally it would be a drawing shown perfectly from the side, with all shapes in the same scale so I can see difference in size too. Anyone have such a thing or know where I can find it?
Sadler’s The Japanese Tea Ceremony has a few. Tankōsha’s 新版 茶道大辞典 in the 別巻 has 43 shapes classified by overall shape, mouth shape, body shape, and shoulder shape. They seem to be proportional. Amazon Japan Link
It is not an inexpensive set, but packed full of information. All the chaire have their names in kanji and furigana.
