Medium Kazu Oba Ramen Bowls
Born in Kobe, Kazu Oba spent his early years in Japan. He moved to Colorado in the 90’s and has called the Boulder area home ever since. He has continued to travel throughout the world for assistantships, workshops, and exhibitions. Kazu apprenticed under two masters, Jerry Wingren, a sculptor in stone and wood, then another master Takashi Nakazato, one of the world’s most renowned potters in Karatsu, one of the ceramic centers of Japan. Kazu’s pottery is dedicated to functional, everyday ware to be used in home. His background as a chef distinctly influences his work, as he maintains a constant focus on the relationship between his pots and the food that will occupy them.
These ramen bowls are on replay at my table, a blank canvas for what I’m cooking that deserves to be seen as well as tasted. Naturally good for soups or ramen, these bowls hold intention- mine and the potters.
Medium Bowls: approx. 7 ⅛” diameter x 3″ height
Large Bowls: approx. 8 ¾” diameter x 4″ height
