Our Goal is to win the Gold Prize.

The Work which came out of Trial and Error.
The Work which came out of Trial and Error. We started from the idea that it might be interesting if a double-three-dimensional structure could be made by the cutting technology. And we had attempted various patterns by trial and error to complete the design. Moreover, in order to increase the degree of difficulty, we adopted a double lattice cube and its thinner width of 0.5 millimeter.
There were so many difficult points to conquer. For example, how to control the vibration of the cutting machine to avoid the transformation of the 0.5 millimeter width lattice cube, how to hold the ball in center for the cutting process from different angles, and how to finish the ball in center of the cube, making it close to a perfect sphere, etc. We could clear those problems up one by one, and finally accomplish the work satisfactory.

Toward a Re-Challenge. (Voice of Person in charge)
I am really honored to be able to have such a prize and have many people to see my work.
Honestly, I didn’t have confidence so I was very surprised to be awarded the prize. Because the level of the contest is increasing year by year, and all award-winning works are so impressive.
I was feeling that my level had not reached to their level, yet. So I just couldn’t believe it when I heard of the news. I was so glad that I could overcome frustrations and various problems to accomplish the work and won the prize. This experience taught me a good lesson.
At the awarding ceremony, I saw a lot of astonishing work there. The works that had regrettably missed a prize are also extremely high quality as well as all award-winning works of other companies.
As for the next time, I will try to improve my skill and knowledge so as to challenge more difficult thing that will be able to fascinate a panel of judges and people who will see it with the aim of winning the gold prize.
