美しいお菓子の木型 ZENBI ART MUSEUM

2022.01.31

本日のほとりからのお散歩は、鍵善良房さんの小さな美術館。

ZENBIさんで開催されている「美しいお菓子の木型‐手のひらの宇宙」展。

祇園のいっかく、ほとりからもてくてく歩いて数分。

美しい景色と建物と展示、お向かいのZENCAFEさんと併せて

ぜひ京都旅行中に立ち寄っていただきたい、大好きな場所です。

淡くカラフルな干菓子と一緒に展示された木型。

木型職人さんは、もう日本に数名しかおられないそう。

日本の道具というのは、無骨で繊細で、本当に美しい形をしているなと感じます。

木型には桜が最適だそうで

桜の木から生まれる木型、木型から生まれる和菓子…

どこまで日本の美しさを詰め込んでくるのと

心が小さく震えました。

可愛い木型を眺めているうちに

可愛い和菓子をいただきたいお口になりましたので、次のお店へ向かうことにします。

ZENBI ART MUSEUM

When it melts in your mouth, it has a soft and gentle sweetness. Kikuju sugar, a sweet of Wasanbon sugar that has been handed down from the Edo period to Kizen Ryobo.

Wasanbon sugar is stuffed into a confectionery wooden mold made of cherry blossom trees, and when a skilled craftsman punches it out, fine and delicate petals appear beautifully one by one. Surprisingly, its materials and recipes haven’t changed much for nearly 300 years.

The confectionery wooden pattern is an important factor in determining the shape of beautiful Japanese sweets.

Seasonal flowers, auspicious patterns, and sometimes elaborate designs according to orders.

The wooden patterns of various sizes have a aesthetic sense peculiar to Japan, and the story of how one confectionery was made and the thoughts of the craftsmen are included.


There are only a few craftsmen in Japan who make such delicate confectionery wooden patterns.

With the hope that the dream world that spreads out in a tiny world can be passed down to the future, this exhibition will feature a large number of wooden patterns that remain in the key good, as well as a precious wooden pattern sculpture in Okayama’s Kyoya collection. Introducing the materials.
