Mingei and the Microwave

Mingei inspired arrtists, (like myself), make work that can go into the microwave,
but some specialty work cannot.

There is nothing inferior about silk or wool just because you can't wash it in the automatic
washer. They need educated care. As do tea bowls.

The whole point of using fine handmade things instead of
factory/industrial made things, is the mindfulness required to use
them. If it weren't for aesthetics, we might as well use plastic.
