WRF LAB West River Field (W//R//F) is run by founder and artist, Nobuhito Nishigawara. Born in Nagoya, Japan, Nishigawara fuses the tradition of Japanese artisan ceramic production with his work as a contemporary artist to produce a line of functional and casual ceramic ware with a clean and simple aesthetic. Nishigawara received his formal education in ceramics over 20 years ago after he moved to North America. The namesake of his company is an ode to his Japanese roots. Nishigawara, his family name, translates to West River Field.
