Akiko Hirai's still life collection celebrates the beauty of everyday domestic objects. Her deeply textured multifaceted bottles and vases are composed of a dark, coarse clay with a white glaze overlay. The dark clay with its many impurities undergoes strong changes in the firing process, while the white clay is much more stable. The end result is a whitish surface through which subtle traces of the underlying colours and textures can be glimpsed, so that viewers can always discover different aspects of the objects.

Approx. 10cm x 6.5cm x 6.5cm
