Award ceremony and exhibition of the 2015 Silver Accessory Contest


The exhibition and award ceremony for the 2015 Art Clay Silver Accessory Contest was held last week in Tokyo, with several of the major prizes, including this year's Grand Prix prize, going once again to European artists.

Joy Funnell, this year's winner from the United Kingdom, was on hand to receive her prize from Aida Chemical Industries Chairman, Seiichi Aida.

The exhibition was held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Theater from the 28th of October to the 1st of November, and was well attended by visitors both from Japan and overseas. The exhibition is a great opportunity to see work from the entire international Art Clay community, and their artistic impressions of this year's Contest theme.
