This was a sweet, quiet love story between two mature men who split after a long-term relationship, but find their way back together. It was circled around the process of making raku ceramics, and there was a lot of technical terms of which I didn't understand one word in five. But what do you know, this wasn't important! It was awesome how the process of sculpting, glazing and firing was used as pictures for the loss and re-building of the relationship. Like a fantasy worldbuilding, something you do not necessarily need to understand literally to get the pictures it draws. A wonderful tale of redemption and loss and finding a way back home nevertheless.
