Exhibition Introduction by the Group
In this exhibition—our fourth, a gathering of 16 craft artists—we will “newly think” crafts and try to erect a large “sign” in the venue pointing the way to the future.
Amid the age-old history of crafts, we are currently pioneering a path to the future. This path we blaze with our “thoughts” about crafts as artists who find a start to the creative process in our materials. That path, while deriving from light, depicts a map to the future and connects with the future.
Tracing that path will take you to each artist’s artwork and view of the future.

We are a group of crafts artists working on the stage of contemporary society and lifestyle. In our approach to craft and creation, we employ our commitment to our material and our technical skills in our work. Our members differ in generation and craft genre, yet we interfuse our thinking to attain works embodying attractive crafts for the contemporary world. Displaying these works, together with the space they are in, we seek to propose new possibilities for arts and crafts to viewers.
