Hiroto Nakanishi, born in Nagoya in 1984, started studying and working with wood in 2003. Nakanishi wanders the deep mountains of Shiga prefecture, where he now lives and works, in search of the perfect wood. The object of his search is wood that has endured nature’s force – decay and scars included – all of which become an integral part of each piece. Inspired by ‘old pottery’ of Japan and Korea, the vessels he makes are classic in shape, which is rendered with a very delicate thinness of the wood using a carving technique that requires practice as well as thorough knowledge of the material.
