Heavenly textured tokkuri and o-choko - the Twist facet is a hallmark technique honed by Hirata san over 25 years. Lovely earthy textures with a hint of bizen.
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.
