The sugar sculpting process


The process of creating sugar sculptures starts with cooked sugar. Through rigorous control of the cooking temperature as determined by humidity and seasonal factors, as well as the moisture in sugar itself, sugar is melted down into a consistency where it can be pulled but not break or melt. Achieving the right consistency is the most difficult part in the creation of sugar sculptures, much harder than the sculpting process itself. When the sugar is ready for sculpting, the melted sugar lump is then reheated in a pan to a temperature of 80 degrees celsius, where it can then be hand crafted into various shapes, using only a pair of scissors and your hands and the hand pump. The melted sugar will crystallize in 3 to 5 minutes, so the timing is important in the sculpting process and requires quick hand movement. It is one of the more entertaining features when watching the art of sugar sculpting. Some people use food coloring as a finishing touch.

Candy Craft (Sugar Sculpting) in Japan

Sugar Sculpting was originally developed as a street performance by candy makers to promote candy sales during the Edo period. Candy producers would use leftover candies and use fine tubes to blow and sculpt cooked sugar into various shapes.

Artis Chizuru Okano


As a little girl I was mesmerized by the sugar sculpting performances that I saw at various festivals, and I dreamed of becoming a performer myself. In my 20's I traveled around the world and I found myself wanting to find a profession that will allow me to keep traveling.
