Soon after finishing writing “Vessel Weather,” there were people whose stories I hoped to convey, no matter what. Setsuro Ono. 77-year-old craftsperson.
Via the work that could only be done by the caring hands of Setsuro, who makes ornate hairpins, spoons, and clay figures, everyone feels connected to the circle of humanity, becomes relieved, and comes to be more gentle.
As soon as the book went on sale, I received letters from readers. It was very encouraging.
