Our design approach with the dolls makes us really look for the natural movement of the wood, utilizing characteristics of the wood, each kokeshi has it’s own spirit and personality.
When people look into the faces and find a connection, we have succeeded in bringing out the spirit of the wood and have given it personality.

Our artistic styles blend so naturally together in creating artworks.
Our combined influences and knowledge constantly elevate and compliment our finished work

Enjoy!


Some of our larger gallery dolls can be seen at Asia society NYC
