Ontayaki has been handed down from the Edo period by passing down the techniques to only one child. Kuroki Masanobu kiln is one of them.
Because the name of the maker is not engraved on the back due to regional considerations, at first glance it seems difficult to tell who made it. Even so, we feel that Masanobu Kuroki's polite work attracts people's attention and gives off a particularly strong personality.
Rhythmic flying pattern
The detailed pattern that draws a circle from the center is a technique called “Tobikanna”. A planer is applied to the surface of the vessel while turning the potter's wheel to create patterns rhythmically. Because the pattern spreads out from the center, the dish in the center is highlighted as the main character. Also, when you hold it in your hand, the unevenness of the planer gives your fingers a pleasant stimulation, and you can really feel that it fits in your hand.
A container that can be used every day as a "daily miscellaneous vessel"
One of the charms of Ontayaki, including Kuroki Masanobu kiln, is the affordable price . This is based on the idea of "common people's pottery". The 10 kilns that remain today protect the ideas and techniques that have been handed down from ancient times to create pottery for people to use in their daily lives.
That's why the shape of the vessel is also rooted in our lives. This cut plate has a shape similar to a bowl. It goes well with juicy dishes such as boiled potatoes and boiled eggplant.
