Ceramic artist Kazu Oba of Colorado was working as a restaurant cook for 15 years when he started paying attention to the vessels on which his food was being served on. He became a potter and apprenticed under Nakazato Takashi, master potter from Karatsu, Japan. Kazu’s creations appear quiet and modest at first glance. But as soon as they are used, you will quickly recognize that they are carefully crafted to enhance the food placed in them. His pots are modern, clean, and are finished with perfectly beguiling rims.
