Q: What made you do the art of fruit carving?

Did you have a teacher or did you teach yourself?

A: I mastered the technique in 2001.
I do not have a teacher. I studied by myself.

Q: How long did it take you to be skilled hands?

A: It took me three weeks.

Q: Why do you use watermelons?
Don't you use cantaloupes or grapefruits for instance?

A: Because watermelon is colorful.
So, it attracts us.
And its part we can carve is large.
It is more powerful than other fruits.
Grapefruit is much smaller than watermelon.
