Ontayaki Ontayaki
Ontayaki is a type of pottery produced in the Ontasarayama area (Genei-cho Sarayama), a mountainous village in Hita City, Oita Prefecture. The kiln was opened in 1705 by Sanuemon Yanase, a potter invited from Koishiwara, Fukuoka Prefecture. In 1931, Mr. Muneyoshi Yanagi, the founder of the Mingei movement, visited Onta and saw the value of folk pottery in the fact that traditional techniques had been passed down. Mr. Bernard Leach, a potter, also received high praise, and Ontayaki became widely known. In 1995, it was certified as a national important intangible cultural asset preservation group, and in 2008, it was selected as a national important cultural landscape under the name of Ontayaki no Sato. The traditional techniques of Ontayaki include “Tobikanna”, “Hakeme”, “Finger painting”, “Comb painting”, “Uchikake” and “Nagashikake”. Today, there are nine potteries, and even after more than 300 years, the traditional techniques have been passed down from generation to generation.

Understanding of "Utsuwa"
〇Because each product is handmade, there may be individual differences in color, shape, pattern, size, thickness, weight, etc. Also, even with the same glaze and clay, uneven colors and shading will appear.
〇Because the painting is also hand-painted one by one, the expression may differ.
〇 Depending on the product, there may be small holes, small black dots, line scratches, protrusions, pinholes, rattling, or distortion due to the manufacturing process.
〇 We have processed the image of the product so that the color is as close to the real thing as possible, but the color and texture may look different depending on the display screen of your computer or smartphone.
〇In our shop, we not only inspect the manufacturer, pottery, and artist, but also deliver products that have passed the final inspection at our store.
〇 Product photos are sample shots, so the items you receive will not be the same in detail.
〇 We do not accept returns or exchanges due to customer's convenience. Please purchase after understanding and acknowledging this.
