His beginnings a metal-carving designer add a unique sensibility to his techniques. His works harmoniously balance the warmth of traditional ceramics and the cool, novel textures of metal. In his pieces, you'll find bold colorings of silver, red, and gray along with exquisitely controlled glazing.
Yuzuru Kobayashi's works and architectural expertise have had great impact at Sara Japanese Pottery. We've enjoyed numerous collaborations, including creative projects for Hanami Chakai(a traditional Japanese flower-viewing tea ceremony) as well as "The Tatami Project" in 2011. His design for this project involved elevating the traditional Japanese tatamimat onto a platform. This multi-use platform can be used to hold a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, or whatever function the space calls for. Currently, it is on display at our shop.
