I took a picture of SHIROGANESHI –a man who works on metals. He simply beats out silver and makes various kinds of containers. Beating hundreds of times and taking plenty of time, plain silver plate becomes strong and changes its shape into a container, which can be called “a treasure”. It is a wonder to see the metal changing shapes by his technique.
