A delightful square ceramic dish in a glowing blue glaze entitled "pale moon".
This dish in Japan would be used to serve morsels of food, or use it to store jewellery, keys, coins.
Terunobu Hirata arrived in Australia from Osaka, Japan in 1973.
Originally trained as a chef, he moved to pottery 25 years ago, working in stoneware and porcelain.
His designs are bold and contemporary with lustrous glazes. A nod to the past with organic style glazing partnered with perfectly proportioned shapes, Hirata’s work is a joy to live with.
