I just received some wonderful photos of handpainted clay Kokeshis done by Victoria Baldoni from Argentina! I knew you would love them too! She just found our show and asked to join, so I wanted to share these today. Her blog is here and she has many more extremely cute Kokeshis she's made and she sells.
I also had someone (sorry... I forgot who!) tell me about Momiji dolls, which are Kokeshis made for kids. They are cute too and a website can be found here. If you click on the "shop", you can see the dolls.
Lastly, I don't know if you noticed the comment by Dana at Yoko Trading? They featured our show on their blog and posted a photo of Stacey's Kokeshis! Check out their website for really cool things like bulk vintage Kimonos and Kimono fabric you can buy! Just the thought got me thinking of all the creative things I could do with it!
I have an idea for another online gallery show but I am going to wait a bit while I complete my list of projects I've wanted to do this summer. So stay tuned! Thank you all again for your participation in our show, whether it be by being an artist or by your wonderful comments!!! I felt it was a success and I had many people say afterwards that they would love to participate in the next one!
