川崎和楽作つくね蓋置
Tsukune futa’oki by Waraku Kawasaki

つくね蓋置(つくねふたおき)とは、 筒状で分厚く、中央に穴が上から下へ貫通しています。「つくね」とは、捏ねて作るからでお団子と語源が同じです。その故素朴で可愛らしく見えるのでしょう。

Tsukune futa’oki is cylinder-shaped and has a thick body.  There is a hole in the middle that goes through from top to bottom.  It is called “tsukune” because it is created by “kneading” the clay – and shares the same derivation as the “tsukune” meatballs that are hand-molded.  “Tsukune” looks unassuming and cute – maybe because it is hand-molded.
