"I'm building a house...and I will make this craft visible in my living room...so that I can always see it...and to show off to people when they visit."
I appreciated the simplicity of the art. Brandon had other episodes in Shokunin Mode - and they were all interesting - but Aso-san's work [with Higo Zogan] blew me away. I think I want to make this craft myself during my retirement. I'm building a house...and I will make this craft visible in my living room...so that I can always see it...and to show off to people when they visit.

"I've noticed that I now have a better appreciation for the artistry and different styles of techniques in Japanese art."
I wanted a feeling of a small slice of Japanese culture. So that I could develop a better overall understanding. I was driven by curiosity and my intense desire to learn more about Japan. In the end, I got the result I was expecting. I got glimpses into the culture and outlook of Japanese citizens and a better appreciation for the language itself. I've noticed that I now have a better appreciation for the artistry and different styles of techniques in Japanese art.

"I want to thank you for sending the crafts, especially the goat you had customized..."
As for the crafts, I like the ones you picked out for me. Currently, they're on display in my bedroom...I want to thank you for sending those crafts, especially the goat that you had customized with my name and my late brother's name put on it. My parents also liked it when they saw it.

"I'm stunned by how beautiful it is."
And not only is it beautiful, but when you purchase one of these plates, you get access to an exclusive video interview with the artisan who designed these plates. What I found super interesting [about Mayuki-san] is that she uses social media to gauge what her next art piece is going to be. She gets feedback [from customers] and uses that to create even more beautiful artwork.
