Jiro and the Broken Bowl
A sorry moment in Jane Yolen's story, as Jiro in a fit of rage smashes a precious ceramic bowl. I don't remember why he did this, but there was a symbolic flower in the bowl which may have been a love token. I know if I searched hard enough and paid enough for an out of print book I could find Jane Yolen's text. My bibliophile friends could help me. As for the people who commissioned these illustrations, I don't want to know where they are now. What they look like now is SHOCKING. Ink on illustration board, 8" x 6", July 1981.
