[Day 23 EA] Ladies' Day Out part 2

One warm spot in the village this winter is Kenichi’s shop where a makeshift kiln is lit at all hours. The place is unmistakable by the wisps of smoke emanating from the backyard. Kenichi, cleverly, has decided to exploit the heat of his trade, and has set up a covered porch against the wall of the kiln room. It acts as a makeshift tavern, and has become a warm spot for social gatherings.

Mao nodded in agreement.

Kyoumi's mouth quirks in a small grin. "You are welcome. Please understand, you'd probably have a better conversation with the MasterSensei at the Academy. I'm not even a painter. Or a potter. My calligraphy isn't really all that good, even. I just make kites, sing, and compose pretty haiku for the pleasure of the court. But I suppose you must take advantage of the moments you find yourself in."

"Kakita-sama, Art, is art, and art theory does not matter what style of art you chose to come from. Nor does the world seem to care what art someone who is talented brings into the world, as long as its brought." She shares a smile in return.

She pauses for a second, and then said, "If I find a Lapis in the wild, or in the Market, I can make a paint out of it, and make the most beautiful deep blue image I can imagine. Should a jeweller find it, he will make it the centre of his next broach. A carver may make a tiny statue of a Fortune or Dragon to give for good luck. Should you find it, perhaps you will see its beauty and write a Haiku or song. I suspect it would be to heavy for a kite, but perhaps you would find a way for that was well.

In any case, the beauty of the world has transformed and inspired something equally beautiful. Thus any artist has the potential to teach another."

She turns back the pottery for a moment, considering the pieces.

"Could you do me a very great favor? We can arrange a trade of gifts, if you wish. Is there any way you would consider writing for us the combinations that create some of these new paints you use? So I can take them back to the Academy with me? So those who are painters can, potentially, learn from them, as you say?"

'Mamoru-san' is here the whole time, keeping Akiko in sight and remaining alert. He is quite obviously not listening to the actual conversation, though.
