Raku ware Hoya Ko’uro Futa’oki by Waraku Kawasaki

長板をお稽古で使った際火屋香炉蓋置が出てきました。七種蓋置きの一つですが、建水に入れて運ぶことをしないため長板や台子でのお点前に限って使われます。(諸飾りで建水が予め飾ってあります。)建水からとって所定の位置にそのまま置きますが、釜の蓋を置く前に火屋香炉の蓋を開けなければなりません。そして長板に戻す前に火屋香炉の蓋を閉めます。

When we used a naga’ita (a long board), a “hoya ko’uro” (an incense burner) futa’oki was brought out.  It is one of the seven futa’oki (shichishu futa’oki), and is never carried in or out in a kensui (a dirty water receptacle).  Therefore, it is used only with a naga’ita or da’isu (so that you have the futa’oki set up on the shelf – as in morokazari).  After removing it from the kensui, it is placed as is at the prescribed location (near the lower right corner of the ro), but the lid of the futa’oki needs to be opened before the lid of the kama can be placed on top.  Before returning it to the naga’ita, the lid of the hoya ko’uro futa’oki needs to be closed.
