Jizai Kagi (Hearth Hook)

Jizai Kagi is an architectural element suspended from a ceiling beam over an open fire to support a hanging kettle. The hearth hook occupied a prominent position in the main gathering area in every traditional Japanese home. Note the beautiful patina and the grooves from a century of use above the cooking area where the rope passed through the crook of the hook to raise and lower the pot over the coals.
