(Reference) About the Marunuma Art Park
The Marunuma Art Park was established by Katsushige Suzaki in the early 1980s with the aim of supporting young artists. Currently, more than 10 artists are active in production activities both in Japan and overseas. In addition, he has collected a large number of works of art, and currently, the “Andrew Wyeth Exhibition” and “Ben Shahn Exhibition” from the Marunuma Art Park Collection are being held in various places and have been well received.

Marunuma Art Park Website URL: http://marunuma-artpark.co.jp/ -Pottery production at Marunuma Ceramic Art Club-
Teaching instructors by professional potters, spacious workshops, full-fledged pottery production style (choose the pottery you want to make from “material of soil” x “firing method” x “glaze”), electric kiln / kerosene kiln In addition, a pottery club characterized by a fulfilling system such as pottery production using anagama (once a year). A wide range of people from beginners to experienced people can participate.
-Sculpture art in a self-managed park-
The concept of the sculpture is “flux”. It symbolizes the meaning of the existence of people who support each other in a big era like a steady flow of water. In addition, since the Nobidome Waterway once ran through, the flow of water is expressed by the shape of the stone and the glass sandwiched between the stones.
