We will hold an exhibition of Shun Kumagai glass works.The theme of created these works is “Traces of Prayer”.Phenomenon that cannot be seen by the eye taking place inside a 1000℃ kiln.The glass melts, joins with the clay and melts together with the metal.While imagining this scene, He create the original shape, make the mold, fill it with glass and fire it.Cool it, carefully split the piece from the mold and finally be able to meet that molded shape which has become glass. Glimpse the traces of the miraculous phenomenon in each and every piece and be deeply moved by them to create more.He said ” This series of actions is similar to prayer”.
