WO ART Exhibition Special Report: Mini-Interview with Hayato Uchiyama
WOiF: You seem to be a person who likes simple pleasures, and Craftworks. If you were a Craftsman, what kind of Craft would you choose?
Ucchy: There are many things that attract my attention but most I like Bamboo. Once I made a Basket out of Bamboo.
WOiF: Really? How did you come to it?
Ucchy: I was visiting (a store?) and someone was working on making baskets, so I got closer to look, and the owner asked me if I wanted to try, and so I did. But it took me 3 hours to make just a little one.
WOiF: You write often about your love to Nature and environment in your Diary. Can you imagine WO endorsing an environmental Organization, like Greenpeace?
Ucchy: Well, I support many NGOs and environmental organisations myself.
WOiF: Tell us about how it was to meet Jose Mujica (A personality deeply admired by Ucchy san)
Ucchy: Well, I couldn’t speak directly to him, but I was on his lecture and at the Autograph session.
WOiF: Did you shake his Hand?
Thanks a lot Ucchy san !
