Born and currently residing in Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture, Nakamura received his pottery training under the guidance of his father, Baizan Nakamura the Second. In 1984, he traveled to Italy to train under Aldo Rontini. His water jug earned a place in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 2001 and was acquired by the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, in 2002. In 2004, Nakamura collaborated with the renowned English porcelain brand Wedgwood, creating the remarkable “Japonesque” series as part of the brand’s art collection. He also presented his work at the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial in 2006. In 2019, Nakamura played a significant role as a member of the craft architecture team in a tearoom design competition organized by the Museum of Asian Art in Berlin. Their exceptional “Fluctuations of Tearoom” was honored as the best design in the competition.
