National Craft Gallery, Castle Yard, Kilkenny

As a special event for Savour Kilkenny we invite ceramic maker Akiko Hirai to speak about her carefully crafted ware; teabowls, teapots, sake bottles and platters in the National Craft Gallery. Akiko creates series’ of beautiful practical ceramic ware in organic hues, seeking to reflect beauty that is found in the natural world. Her work is influenced by ceramic traditions of Japan and Britain; and seems to nod to the sense of ceremony around sharing food held in both cultures.
Akiko Hirai is head of Ceramics department at Kensington & Chelsea College, London since 2013.
