Last year I posted a video of a man making Japanese Kokeshi dolls. Here’s another one. I’ve wanted to do a longer post about these wonderful wooden dolls. When I was doing Ebay years ago, I encountered these wonderful wooden dolls in tag sales and sold a couple of them. So I had done some research on before and I wanted to share the fruits of that research.
Another making video.
And another one.
Not Japanese, apparently.
Here’s some links.
