Akiko Hirai

Akiko Hirai (b. Shizuoka, Japan, 1970) employs the Japanese tradition of leaning on the properties of clay to guide the final process of how her sculptural vessels and functional wares should be fired. Her unique approach has created international praise and attention, and her works are collected and represented by important galleries such as Hauser & Wirth Zurich.
