"Striped 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.

Hiroki Miura is a Japanese artist based in Saga on the island of Kyushu in southern Japan. His playful and inventive approach gives rise to work that is colourful, magical and often surreal - like children’s paintings of fantastical creatures made into three dimensional forms.
