Kioko . Kokeshi doll no. 8

Kioko (happy child) is the 8th doll in my kokeshi series. She and her tiny bird are handmade by me with lots of love and attention to detail from polymer clay, wire, glue, Japanese ribbon, beads and acrylic paints. She is a OOAK doll. Find her in my clay shop.

This is how I choose the colors for every kokeshi.
I do a general sketch before making the actual doll.
These dolls need a lot of patience to create, but the results are always satisfying.
Hope they make you happy!

This is how I keep my clay clean and dust-free while working in stages.

Nori and Yori . Kokeshi doll no. 7

Nori and Yori . Kokeshi doll no. 7

When Yori was born, the Moon was much brighter than normal and the sky full of shiny stars.
 Nori carries him on her back singing the sweetest lullabies.
"You are my child of moonlight, the sea dances for you and I’ll always love you."

Nori is a One Of A Kind doll. I've used polymer clay, acrylic colors and paper to make her
 and her baby boy. The shadow box background paper is a museum quality print which will
not fade with time (for at least for 100 years).
It is decorated with a small paper cut moon and swarovski crystals. 

You can find them in my clay shop

* Name meanings: 
Yori (Trust)
Nori (Belief)

The miniature shadow box is beautifully handmade by my parents just for me!

Pieces of autumn

"Autumn is second spring when every leaf is a flower."
Albert Camus

Just wanted to share a few photos that I took during the months of autumn.
It's a beautiful season in Canada.

How about your city?

Meet our cats

Meet our new cats, Felfeli and Boma!
 They are a pair of brother and sister and are one and a half years old!
 We adopted them 3 weeks ago. The sister (Felfeli) was very friendly and comfortable from day one,
 but Boma is a very shy guy.
He was hiding under the bed, in the tub, under the sofa, name it!
Now he is a bit better, he comes out and plays with his sister and we can pet him a little bit. 

 Boma in his hideout :D

Felfeli, she is the sweetest!
