For a poster

Other day, there was a day that took a photo for a poster of an exhibition of Kurashino-kougei-ten.

This exhibition will be November.

The photographer took photos of the works of individual artists and also took the entire photo.

It was hard day, but I am looking forward to the exhibition.

I don`t care

These plates were made by a potter named Kazuna Yamaguchi in Mie prefecture who joined Mingei-ichi with me.

They were sold with discount, because of flaw.

I don`t care about flaw!I can enjoy dishes enough!

How to wear Kimono

I finished an event of Mingei-ichi in Osaka,Japan Folk Crafts Museum. Thank you for all who coming there.

Next exhibition is in Umeda Hankyu Department store.

I took short rest.

My two customers who wear Kimono well taught me how to wear Kimono. I went to customer`s house. She was a teacher of cooking. So She cooked for me Udon dishes. It was beautiful and so delicious.

After lunch, I was taught how to Kimono, and finally I wore it with hard fight.

It must be a long way to wear Kimono by my self. I

was suprised that they gave me a lot of beautiful Kimono and Obi. How lucky!Thank you so much !I could not say anything!

The turtle bag

My mother`s cousin asked me for repair of this bag. This leather is turtle!

It was a hard request even though I go to the leather bag lesson.

I was surprised that this bag was made in Showa era. There were 3 pouches with it.

When I received it , Handles and the cover that connected with three pouches were broken. I wanted to use metal fittings that were originally used.

I did do my best!It became beautiful bag again!

I am happy if she uses it a lot.

Hisashi Kawai

I went to a exhibition of Hisashi Kawai. His granduncle is Kanjiro Kawai. My family is close with everyone in his family.

There was a plate that I love in first sight. But it was one of 6 in a set. But I could not afford to buy 6.

So I ask him ` If at all possible, could you sell only one?`

He replied yes willingly.

It is beautiful plate. What dish is good for it??
