This flower shaped vase/cup is thrown in stoneware and glazed with a slightly textured shino finish.
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.
