"Tall Blue Bird" - wild fired ceramic vase by Hiroki Miura from February 2024.
This piece was fired using a “wild burning” technique, where the work is baked outdoors for about half a day using rice husks, straw and wood as fuel. Colouring is done by decorating with pigments, minerals and soil before firing.
Each figure comes packed in a sweet, hand made box, with an illustration of the work hand drawn on the front by Hiroki.
While adorable on its own, this piece also has a small opening at the top and is water safe, so can be used as a vase.
length: 8cm (incl. beak)
Nb. this is a hand made piece and measurements are approximate.
