Hodsdon Kokeshi Dolls, from tree to finished doll.
We entered this path with wanting to work together, share in the Japanese heritage and share our story.
We believe that There is a need and always room for traditional folk art in today's modern times, it creates a more inspired , vibrant and engaged society.
For us there are so many efforts to sustain and support wood art and Kokeshi tradition and culture.
Our approach is simply to work with our hands and the raw materials to create a little Kokeshi personality with beautiful woods
Kokeshi are believed to bring prosperity,peace and a sense of safety to the houses that they occupy

Tall, stately Tamami is a long haired beauty. Her exotic look comes from her height and highly decorative red maple burl body. The flowers seem etched into the wood leaving plenty of the natural color and features to shine through. Her face is subtly sweet, made from a few perfect paint strokes. LOVE her!
