We are sad to report that on July 27, 2020, Hiroi Michiaki passed away. He was 87 years old. We were very fortunate to be able to interview both Hiroi and Janell before their deaths. Hiroi was a playful, thoughtful person who hoped that the tops he created would make others smile. As we bring the Carving Community project to a close this year, we are deeply grateful to be able to share the interviews from our time with Hiroi and Janell.
