 Ohi ware

Ohi Chozaemon introduced Ohi ware in 1666. He accompanied the Urasenke Grand Tea Master when the Maeda family, who ruled the Kaga Clan (the present Ishikawa and Toyama areas) in feudal times, invited the Grand Tea Master to Kaga. Chozaemon remained in Kanazawa and worked for the Maeda family. Ohi ware is lightweight ceramic ware shaped by hand and with a spatula and baked at a comparatively low temperature. The simple but beautiful shape with amber glaze and a gentle touch of the ware are highly evaluated.
