Happy Lunar New Year, 4708!

Happy 4708, Year of the Tiger everyone! In celebration of this year I decided to do a very special project, a small run set of kokeshi dolls. I was worried that they wouldn’t be finished in time but here they are! I am sending them out to their happy new homes tomorrow. I hope people love them and that they bring them luck throughout the year. You can think of these lil’ guys as Baby Lunar New Year if you will.

The little family (five girls and one boy) are done in traditional colors (red, yellow, gold, and black) and, like daruma, have unpainted pupils. I love daruma and kokeshi both so I couldn’t help but combine them here!

Some day I’d really love to celebrate the New Year properly, but I live on the coast of Florida where there is little/no community. Maybe some day!
