From time to time, on our buying trips to Japan, we come across an exceptional collection that we have the opportunity to bring back to Australia and then share with our customers and friends. Recently, this was the case with a unique and varied collection of kokeshi dolls.
We invited kokeshi connoisseur, Kirsten Albrecht to speak to Robert Joyce of her love for kokeshi and how to build a kokeshi collection. You can hear and watch the video Kokeshi at Kazari here.
The traditional and creative kokeshi, plus Kirsten's talk were such an inspiration that we decided to create a page on our website dedicated to kokeshi. We hope you find it both educational and inspirational.
Over the coming weeks, we will continue to upload more kokeshi onto our website (see here), but in order to see the collection in full, we recommend you come in store!
