In 2003, Ōtani pottery was designated as a national traditional handicraft.
The potter's wheel used in the production of Ōtani pottery is known as a 'nerokuro,' literally a 'lying potter's wheel.' One person must lie on his or her side and turn the wheel with his or her feet. The potter and the assistant must have perfect timing in order to create a successful product. Ōtani pottery is the only pottery in Japan that still uses this technique.
