香炉・Incense Burner

Leave a comment

香炉とは日本の仏具において燭台・花立とともに、 三具足のひとつ。 もとは仏や菩薩の供養のために香を焚く仏具だったものが、 床の間や書院の飾りとして用いられるようになったとか。侘び寂びの茶道では香炉はあまり使われませんが、武家茶道では香炉が今でも使われるそうです。

An incense burner is a part of “Mitsugusoku” – three items used at a Buddhist altar in Japan, along with a candle stand and a flower vase.  It was originally for burning incense as an offering to Buddhas, and was later used as a decorative item in alcoves (tokonoma) and formal parlors (sho’in).  An incense burner is not often used for “wabi sabi” tea, but I hear that an incense burner is still used today for “samura’i-style” tea (buke sado’u).

This incense burner is by a local artist in San Francisco.  It is raku ware, finished with celadon crackle glaze.

Born and raised in Japan, Etsuko joined the ceramics world upon discovering a clay studio in San Francisco in 2002. For inspiration and motivation, she visits pottery villages in Japan, and recently joined the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA).
