The shikkui plastering at kominka yukuzasama has gone well, and the walls in the large room are all coated in a fresh white. The only exception is the yet-to-be-repaired earthen main wall of the tokonoma.
The work on the wall is taking a bit of a holiday break (as I am in Montana until just after the new year). It may wait even longer if this coming year’s charcoal kiln reconstruction and subsequent firing begins in early January as planned.
In the meantime, I have a few images of the newly plastered walls to share, though it may be hard to get a sense of it through the photos.
Still work to be done, but it’s a good step forward!
