Since we don’t really have any news these days, I’ll just post some not-so-new news for the time being. Here is more detail for the Wonder Showcase. I hope you enjoy it. =]

Official label “Wonder Show Case” of Wonder Festival was established in 1999 as an artistic support system aimed at helping talented young sculptors to reach their full potential. Artisans chosen for the year’s “Wonder Show Case” will be given special attention during the festival, and limited quantities of their masterpieces are sold for high prices to avid collectors.

45 sculptors were promoted in “Wonder Show Case” since 1999, and 2 sculptors were chosen this year. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the label, works of all 47 sculptors featured in the past ten years were exhibited at Wonder Festival 2009 [Summer]. So we’ll show you their masterpieces in chronological order.

Wonder Show Case authority told in the presentation that “Where there are people who want to blossom out as a sculptor, we are lavish with help.” WSC should be a stepping-stone for those who want to master their way.
