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.
