Kokeshi Doll Donation Piece

In March 2013 Judson was contacted by the Nikkei National Museum to participate in their 5th Annual BLOOM Art Auction Fundraiser. A variety of Vancouver based artists and designers were challenged to take a simple shape and make it into something unique! As you can image this was just the task for Jud and before long he had a stack of sketches on his desk! Traditional dolls have stylized faces and sometime look like characters from popular movies.

There is something very unique, and playfully summer about his final design and it was a hit at the show!

What would your Kokeshi doll look like?

Judson chose from these pre-made wooden dolls:

Perhaps you recognize a similar Straight Line piece that he took an inspirational bite from…

Have you ever seen a cabinet like this?
