Reid Ozaki was born in Hilo and raised in Honolulu. He started seriously working in ceramics at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington while completing a degree in Biology and continued in ceramics as a graduate student. Ozaki's current work focusing on Kaki, vessels for Ikebana, was inspired by his childhood summers spent with his grandfather in his gardens and by his interest in traditional Japanese art.
