"Ohi potter" has history of 340 years which inherits great culture of Kaga. Ceramic Artist Ohi Toshio, valuing on the spirit of Way of tea, dedicates himself to carry on the traditional techniques to create warm and substantial potters. With the essence of Way of tea which is embodied in two words, "once-in-a lifetime" and "encounter", he makes potters one by one from the heart in the same manner as preparing powdered green tea. He starts to gain the truth: "Every principle in the whole world is taught by these two words." At this moment, thanking once-in-a-lifetime of today and hoping once-in-a-lifetime of tomorrow, he shows the world's first live performance of making Ohi potter on Noh stage at TEDxSeeds.
