The Hepworth Wakefield are delighted to present a selection of still life ceramics available by Akiko Hirai.

Japanese born Akiko Hirai now lives and works in London and was shortlisted for the LOEWE Foundation Craft Prize, 2019.  Akiko Hirai makes practical ware using the Japanese tradition of allowing the clay to show how it wants to be fired itself. Her work also allows the viewers to find out the language of the objects in their own ways. She focuses on the interaction between objects and viewers. Her unique approach to ceramic work has had much attention and praise and her work is in demand from commissions in England and worldwide.



All Akiko Hirai ceramics are currently sold out. If you would like to be notified once these are back in stock, please email us at shop@hepworthwakefield.org.
