The Kokeshi page has been updated to include #39-41 The Creamy Family. La (left), Pip (middle), and Wisp (right) were made for the March 2010 Super7 Florida show. La and Wisp are currently available for adoption in my online shop; Pip was adopted opening night.
With this family I wanted to play with the natural grain of the wood so, aside from sealer, their faces were left completely untreated. I wanted them to have a softness and a spring time feel to them, I think of the them as little alien flowers almost. Pip is also the first severed head kokeshi. I kind of feel like she has a giant body underground just waiting to pop up.
Clicking on the thumbnails will open each photo in its own page where you can view it larger, leave comments, and/or keep browsing through the series.
