Akiko produces domestic ware for everyday use. She bases her designs on the Japanese aesthetics of relativity, the beauty of imperfection, irregularity, spontaneity, and impurity. It is a white slipware depiction of a woman who is wearing white make-up. It is called Kohiki (powder blown) ware.
The association between words and her ceramic work has become very important over the last few years. The ambiguity of language is similar to the way she uses ceramic materials. When you read between the lines, what you enjoy is the subtlety. To Akiko, good literature can induce many sensations for the reader because of how the words and context are used. Therefore, the story line is important but is clearly very sophisticated depending on how it is interpreted.
New work by Akiko Hirai will be in the gallery and on the website shortly.
