About exhibited works
A dense expression of the material that is created by careful and repetitive work possesses the power to enchant an audience. We selected three young craft artists who pull out of them and make it realize. Inoue makes advantage of how nature spreads and created fabric works which remind people of various and imaginary landscape. Oda expresses the power of lives which do not carry a hard and metallic material are organically intertwined to each other. Tanaka depicts the moment of brilliance of a life by a sensitive and fragile china clay. We are very pleased if you feel the power of the material itself.
