Obori Soma ware is a style of pottery produced in the former village of Obori, which is now part of the town of Namie in the Futaba district of Fukushima Prefecture. Its history spans some 350 years, dating back to the Edo period (1603–1868).
During the days of the Soma clan's rule over the area, this style of pottery was known as Soma ware. Since being designated by the government of Japan as a national traditional craft, it has gained widespread recognition under the name Obori Soma ware, Obori being the name of the place in which it is produced. In the production of Obori Soma ware, potter's clay from deposits in the Utsukushimori area of Namie is shaped by hand with the use of a potter's wheel. After the finishing touches are applied to the shape, the pottery is dried out of direct sunlight. Once the drying process is complete, the pottery is bisque fired. Each piece is then painted with an image of a galloping horse, which is one of the distinguishing features of Obori Soma ware. A glaze is then applied and fused to the pottery by glost firing. The unique dual-layered construction of Obori Soma ware maintains the temperature of hot liquids while also keeping the pottery cool to the touch on the outside, making it suitable for carrying hot water. Fukushima Prefecture was once home to roughly 25 pottery manufacturers. Many were forced to leave by the effects of the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011. Today, there are around 10 potters who have rebuilt in Fukushima Prefecture. While keeping the region's pottery traditions alive, these artisans continue to create new products suited to the demands of day-to-day life, train the next generation, spread the word about their traditional craft to the world, and instill local pride with their craftsmanship.
