Wooden carved hibachi in the form of an hourglass from the Taishō period. The hibachi has a metal insert on the inside and has a thick wooden nicely rough outside and rim; carved on the outside to imitate an old tree stump and rests on a wooden plate.
The literal meaning of hibachi is “fire bowl”. Hibachis use a large amount of heat to cook delicious meat, vegetable and seafood dishes. This item has a very nice wabi-sabi feeling. In traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi (侘寂) is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of appreciating beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete” in nature.Taisho Period.
