Moon Jar 45 x 55 cm by Akiko Hirai/ Cavaliero Finn Gallery

Akiko Hirai’s work is a fusion of Japanese and British ceramic traditions. Based on the traditional Korean Moon Jar, a white porcelain jar made during the mid 17th to mid 18th century, in the late period of the Joseon Dynasty, Akiko brings her own unique modern-day take on these jars. Rounded in form, they appear to have a volcanic glaze streaming down the sides and encrusted on the surface, like a ‘whitewater’ river bubbling over rocky river beds. Akiko’s first Moon Jar was shown in the Moon Jar exhibition at the Korean Cultural Centre, London in August 2013.

The artist’s ceramic repertoire includes a range of domestic ware; teapots, bowls, cups, storage jars, sake bottles, plates and vases and so on, and her more ornamental, large scale pieces like her moon jars.

In 2019 Akiko was a finalist of Loewe Craft Prize, in the same year the Victoria and Albert Museum in London added one of her moon jars to their permanent collection. The artist’s work is much sought after worldwide.
