Grey Speckle Teapot

Akiko Hirai
Hand-sculpted teapot crafted by London based potter Akiko Hirai, the teapot has been thrown on a potter's wheel and curved to create a pleasingly tactile organic surface.

Akiko Hirai draws upon traditional Japanese methods when making her ceramics. Her pieces are deeply textured and her forms are those of work ware - simple and satisfying. She uses rough dark clay, creating a veil between the rough forms underneath and the smooth calm of the glazed exterior.
