- Product Details
Always in pursuit of technical and material fulfilment, Akiko Hirai creates ceramics using the Japanese tradition of allowing the clay to show how it wants to be fired. In this sense, her work expresses the language of the nature. Using dark clay, highly textured and glazed in white, this range reflects the purity of snow, melting on a clear spring morning.
Akiko's pieces are deeply textured and her forms are those of utility ware – simple and satisfying. She uses rough dark clay, which creates a veil between the rough forms underneath and the smooth calm of the glazed exterior. Akiko studied at The University of Westminster and Central St Martins. She is currently the Head of Ceramics at Kensington and Chelsea College.
