The Hiiro range of pottery is inspired by red flame colour, evoking the horizon line at morning dawn or evening dusk, separating the earth and sky.
The "flame colour" (hiiro) along the border between the glaze and the clay is a natural phenomenon created during the firing process: it results from the interaction between earth, air and fire. Typically, the glaze is applied over all visible surfaces of the pottery piece, hiding the flame colour on the underside of the piece. By revealing and emphasizing the glaze line along the visible surface of the pottery piece, we can use this beautiful colour as a motif. Using white clay and white glaze enhances the vivid beauty of the red flame colour, evoking the horizon line at dawn, separating the earth and sky.
