This shino glazed piece is, believe it or not, thrown on a wheel and then twisted and carved by hand.
We love it with Dancing Lady Orchids, or even on its own sitting amongst an arrangement of vases and objects.
The twisted facet is one of Hirata’s hallmarks as is his small but spectacular palette.
width: 10cm (at widest point)
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.
