He thinks that the most difficult aspect about working with wood is that its shape can change depending on the environment. Nakaya-san has recently been focusing on using local trees that were toppled during typhoons or by silvicultural tree felling. This deep love for wood comes through in the prominence that Nakaya-san gives to the natural beauty of wood rings, which transforms his bowls, plates and other products into dazzling organic and utilitarian works of originality.
The natural rings of the wood create a beautiful contour map and it does not take long to notice how much careful planning goes into his work.
The bowls are shaped before the wood is dried and are left to warp as they dry naturally to form their unique shape.
