Kokeshi-Inspired Ceramic Doll - Serene Soda-Flashed Shino
This one-of-a-kind ceramic vessel is inspired by the traditional Japanese folk art known as kokeshi dolls. A perfect gift for any occasion, it can be used as a vase, personal guardian, or vessel for keepsakes, memories, dreams, and treasured objects. The head is a closed form containing a bead of clay. Its bell-like rattle reminds us that what’s inside us is what matters most.

All of my work is handmade and one-of-a-kind. As a result, minor imperfections, marks, and variations in each piece are natural and expected. These differences give each piece its unique character, charm, and beauty. Just like you!
Please use and enjoy your new functional art, but treat it gently - pottery is breakable. Dust with a soft, dry cloth or hand wash with mild dish soap and water to keep each piece looking its best.
Pieces without metallic luster are dishwasher and microwave-safe, but hand-washing is recommended. Please do not put it on the stovetop, against direct heat, in the oven, or in the freezer.
