KOKESHI JAR DOLLS

sdr

For today’s class, we were following the theme of Japanese kokeshi dolls. In Japan originally Kokeshi dolls were crafted from wood and then hand-painted. Today you can also find them being produced using other materials such as plastic and porcelain. I decided to create a multi-functional Kokeshi doll, which also doubled as a pen/brush pot. We went through the stages of creating our own design and then using techniques to apply the design to our pots.
