KICHI DOLLS

After finishing a workshop with Sarah Hornik, I determined to apply some of the newfound skills to a concept of my own.
One of the classes I was mad keen on was 'Introduction to colour reactions'. The first beads I made for that class were pretty pathetic, too much pressure! See the challenges page for photos.
I love geisha and kokeshi but didn't want to replicate a subject matter that has been explored in great detail by others. Kichi dolls are, however, heavily influenced by geisha, maiko, kokeshi, anime and Harajuku street culture.
I searched for an appropriate name and discovered Kichi, meaning fortunate or lucky. Created in the spirit of fun and joy. I consider myself lucky to have 'found' them.
