火鉢セット (hibachi setto)
hibachi set

=====================

For this piece, Hiroi-sensei has created wooden parts of a miniature hibachi set. Hibachi are heating devices used for cooking. They come in either cylindrical or square shapes and typically use charcoal as their source of heating. Hiroi-sensei has included a kettle, small dishes, and a container with real charcoal inside.

Hiroi Michiaki: And this, this is a hibachi set. In the set there’s a kettle. And I think there’s charcoal in here. Charcoal.

Mrs. Hiroi: Yeah. There’s charcoal in it.

Hiroi: And here there’s a tea cup. What is this? I think it’s a pitcher.

Mrs. Hiroi: Yeah.

Hiroi: If there’s no more water, you put it in from here. And in the old days, green tea was like a luxury, and you would usually only drink hot water. You would only drink green tea on special occasions.
