Hironobu "Nishi" Nishitateno puts his heart and soul into creating each of his handmade works of pottery. His pieces are made with natural materials and glazed with colors found in nature. Nishi's style is based on the simplicity and functionality of Japanese pottery, enhanced by international influences. He travels with notebook in hand, sketching designs and shapes that are worthy of incorporation into new works.
