As a skilled producer of Shigaraki-ware, Satoki Onishi’s work spans a range of formats, from teaware, dishware, and sake flasks and cups to display pieces such as vases. His work also runs the gamut stylistically: some of his pieces are fired in the pit kilns (ana-gama) that have traditionally been used to create Shigraki-ware, while others are thoroughly modern, and fired in the electric kilns common today.
Many of these pieces are united by the deep red finish that is representative of Shigaraki-ware. “I just love that deep red, for whatever reason,” Onishi says.
As a ceramics artist, Onishi is fixated on the unique qualities of the clay he uses, and takes extensive care to ensure his pieces represent the essence of the place from which they originate. “Raw clay from Shigaraki is excellent, because it allows you to represent the ineffable spirit of Shigaraki,” Onishi says. “What makes Shigaraki-ware special is its ability to withstand fire – and the fact that, when a piece is fired in the kiln, small pebbles (mainly of quartz and feldspar) rise to the surface, producing an effect known as ishi-haze.” This characteristic is part of what makes Shigaraki-ware unique among Japanese ceramics – “among ceramics across the world, even,” according to Onishi.
Shigaraki-ware carries the distinction of being one of Japan’s six ancient ceramics traditions. Onishi was born in the hometown of that style – Shigraki, Shiga Prefecture – in 1964. His father, Chūza Onishi, is one of Japan’s foremost teapot artisans, and was designated the first official Preserver of the Intangible Cultural Property that is Shigaraki-ware in Shigaraki (which has since been merged with the neighboring city of Koka).
The younger Onishi began helping out in the family business when he was in college. Though he was never explicitly taught the techniques of pottery, he studied hard at his father’s side, watching how his father would work at the pottery wheel and learning by imitation.
After this period of learning, Onishi decided to attend the Kyoto Prefectural Ceramists' Technical Institute, where he studied everything from the core techniques of pottery to design. After graduation, he spent two years as a contractor at the Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park in his hometown before starting his own workshop in 1996.
Onishi has been familiar with his father’s work since childhood, so it is not surprising that the pieces the two artists produce using the traditional wood-fired kilns of Shigaraki bear a deep family resemblance.
“I would love for people to use my pieces for a decade or two – as long as they can, really – and still look at them and think, ‘this really is a good one.’ I want to make pieces that you can use for years without tiring of them – pieces that, even as you use them, offer fresh discoveries over time,” Onishi says.
