Hodsdon Kokeshi with Hair Pieces


Jacob and Lisa Hodsdon believe in the need for traditional folk art in today’s modern times. Lisa Holt-Hodsdon is a Japanese-American artist who specializes in painting and design, and Jacob Hodsdon has been turning wood and carving for many years. Both draw inspiration from the natural beauty of wood. The Hodsdon’s approach is simple: they work with their hands and raw materials to create Kokeshi from beautiful woods. Seeking out the details and natural movement of the wood, they use tiny burls and limbs that would otherwise be discarded. The wood’s natural characteristics let each Kokeshi develop its own personality. When people look into the faces of the dolls and have a connection, Lisa and Jacob have succeeded in bringing out the spirit of the wood.
