sweet dream

Osamu Watanabe is an artist who creates objet made with resin decoration. His works were strongly affected by his mother, a pastry teacher, and have fancy decoration covered on like sweets even if it is a skull or a traditional figurine. Kawaii or not?

history in 3D

The artist Atsushi Adachi is challenging to make history 3D, and WW2 is his latest theme. They look like just antique toys at a glance, but old Japanese newspaper was coverd on a Japanese fighter and American newspaper on the US bomber. Very unique but controversial art pieces.

not for beer bottles

These beer cases are made of iron, not plastic. They are art pieces made by a young artist, not for actual use for beer bottles, of course. Cool, aren't they?

online love

You can find a shape of smartphone in the Japanese message "I love you". I guess this iron work has a strong ironic twist on the todays trend of online love.

Unique art pieces were on the wall in the hotel room, which have simple composition of woods and metal. These are by the Osaka based artist Masayuki Tsubota whose works are varied from small desktop objet to big public art.

stone age tools

These look like stone age tools, but they were recent art works. The stones are chipped out into the shape of brades which actually seem to work.

natural beauty

Stones which got the shape softened by washing down in a river are beautiful. We can appreciate them as an art objet when we displayed on the wall.

abandoned houses

This installation of iron works remind me abandoned houses after severe disaster, caused by war or earthquake.


The only house which remained the roof and walls looks also empty. Life is not easy on this planet at all.

space cat

This big cat in a space-suit seems to be ready to fly out into space. His wide-open eyes show his commitment to not miss anything he sees in the adventure ahead.


His shiny metal boots look capable of traveling over the tough ground on the new planet. Good luck.

hanging bell

Is this a hanging bell from another planet? It's quite big, about the size of a man, and has an eye watching us. This artwork looks metal, but really is an earthware with shiny coating. Very weird and striking.
