ONTA YAKI-(小鹿田焼) Ceramics of Oita Prefecture

Onta Yaki is  Folk Pottery or Mingei. It is the very essence of "Mingei" as all the work is done manually from start to finish. It is a community effort, from digging the clay, to purifying it and producing it. Onta potters do not mark their work with anything but 小鹿田 (Onta).

This is a large plate!
