“When you get the softened candy, you have just 5 minutes to form it. That is why being fast is the most important element during the design. Because after 5 minutes, candy starts to harden. Maybe this is the reason of this art’s beingso powerful.”

Shinri Tezuka’s most famous designs are goldfish, frog, tiger, dragon and figures like that. Tezuka also loves his job and regards himself as one of the people who try to survive the Japanese culture. Please look at the artist’s Instagram and watch the related video below.
