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

Tohikoa is a slender lady made of blonde, light colored wood. She has subtle painted decor. The stick in her black hair bun is theatrical and really beautiful! It was the first feature I loved about her. I am so crazy over these Kokeshi dolls by Lisa and Jacob! The figures are gentle creatures with natural beauty and calming qualities. I need them in my life.
