Onta-yaki is a traditional form of Japanese pottery that originates from the Onta village in Oita Prefecture, Kyushu. With a history spanning over 300 years, Onta-yaki is renowned for its rustic and simple aesthetic, often characterized by warm earthy tones, subtle patterns, and a tactile quality. One of the distinct features of this pottery tradition is the use of wooden hammers, or "karausu", to pound and mix the clay, a process which can be heard throughout the village. The techniques and methods of Onta-yaki have been passed down through generations, and the community places great importance on maintaining its traditional practices, despite the advances in modern pottery. This commitment to tradition ensures that every Onta-yaki piece embodies a deep sense of history and craftsmanship.
