W/R/F Lab, West River Field Lab, is run by Japanese artist Nobuhito Nishigawara in Southern California. The namesake extends from Nishigawara’s Japanese heritage. Born in Nagoya, Japan, his family name of Nishigawara translates to West River Field. The functional, casual pottery line fuses the artistry of traditional Japanese ceramic dinnerware with a clean and simple aesthetic. Every single object is artisanal in the W/R/F studio and is handmade to be one of a kind.
