Nobuhito Nakaoka was born in Osaka, Japan in 1977. At the age of 18, he began to learn pottery making. During the process of doing chores and making countless vessels, he learned techniques and the use of the ceramic wheel. During the process of learning art, he learned from Mr. Xi Duanzheng, who is the famous pottery master of Danbo. Graduated from Kyoto Institute of Technology in 2001, majoring in ceramics. After that, he studied pottery glaze in the industrial testing ground of Kyoto City. In 2003, he was appointed as “Saint Vincent”, and be a volunteer for overseas cooperation in Japan. Shaped by gravity and the circular force of a ceramic wheel, the ceramic wheel could only make a single shape, so he had the talent to sublimate this simple work to what could be called perfect artwork. Holding the platform to its limits, he realised that the vessel seemed to oat in the air. And then during the ring process, the paint on the work leaves unique lines (traces) as the glaze melts and is expanded by gravity, which means that the law of gravity naturally spreads footprints all over the vessel. He felt that the rotating shaft of the ceramic wheel was tightly connected with the inner time axis, so his works with extraordinary talent were born in the combination of gravity, centrifugal force and time. Was this creative process enough to express “space” itself? Works beyond ordinary people are born in imaginative people! His unique pottery works prove this. He has participated in ceramic art exhibitions all over the world, and his artworks collected in various art institutions in Japan.
