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

Momiko is made of Flame Box Elder, so the red streaking is quite natural. There isn’t a pretentious grain in his body because he is, honestly, a natural wonder! Greenery adds to his basic great looks, and swipes of gold make his bangs shine! No hat, fan, lantern or flashy ornamentation needed to make him important. He just is!
