Ohi Museum Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum
Ohi pottery is quite close to the raku style of Kyoto, and indeed that is where its origins lie. It was introduced to Kanazawa in 1666 by the Chozaemon family. Ohi Chozaemon Toshiro, the 10 th to bear the name and a highly-rated artist, perpetuates the tradition. Ohi pottery is handmade, without the use of a mechanical wheel. It typically has black or amber glazing, a colour which is obtained by slow firing, and is designed specifically for the tea ceremony. Its refined lines, rough surfaces and monochrome colours reflect the very essence of the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, simple and austere beauty.
