Yanase san would be the first to admit that his technique isn't perfect, but he is learning fast. He has a nice naive approach to shape and texture as can be seen in all his designs.

His parents still think this is an expensive hobby though, and wonder why he can't go into the washi business, which is still a busy local industry.
