Born in Japan, Nobuhito Nishigawara’s family name translates to West River Field which is the namesake for his line of handmade stoneware, WRF Lab. Fusing Japanese artisan traditions with his work as a contemporary artist, each piece is handcrafted in his Southern California studio. Subtle variations in form and finish are intrinsic qualities of the handmade nature of these special pieces. These generously sized mugs feature a wide base for stability, and large easy-to-grasp handles. Dishwasher and microwave safe.
