Made With Love: Japanese Kokeshi Dolls From a Spinning Block of Wood.
Yasuo Okazaki, shows us how just from a piece of wood, his inner vision of a doll emerges.
A really beautiful video to watch. It just goes to show that you don’t need fancy equipment and the latest gadgets to produce something as breath taking as this.
Yasuo’s father taught him how to make these very sweet dolls. The tradition spans back over 400 years. He allowed a cameraman to film him. I think that although he is being filmed, you would never tell, as he looks very relaxed in his work.
The moment I saw this, I knew that you the viewers would like to see it.
A natural craftsman, and all his pieces are made with love.
