Atelier Tour(November 8th, 2016. CREARE Atami-Yugawara Studio)

Commemorative photo after observing the studio

A day before the award ceremony, the award winners visited CREARE Atami-Yugawara Studio to observe and hands-on training on the creation of public art using stained glass and ceramic relief. Award winners from abroad remarked that stained glass which was only used in old buildings like churches in Europe is used for modern art in Japan. At the end of the program, they moved to the facility ‘Creare Art building’ for hands-on training. They created work using colorful glass and ceramic pieces on about A5-size plates. As soon as they started working on it, their creativity showed on their faces. One hour later, 18 individual pieces were completed.
