The Kogei World Competition in Kanazawa is an international competition meant to convey to the world what is new in kogei (craft). This competition serves to pursue artistic works that demonstrate a rich sense of expressivity, using the techniques and skill cultivated within the world of kogei to bring excellent concepts and ideas to life.
The goal is to find not just items that demonstrate superior artistic technique, but also kogei works that sharply highlight a deep sense of expressiveness of contemporary ideas. The materials and techniques to be used include ceramics, metal, dyeing and weaving, lacquer, dolls, wood, bamboo, glass, leather, cloisonné, paper, and more. Creative Cities, especially of Craft and Folk Art, are warmly encouraged to submit their innovative projects.
