Kokeshi is a doll  made in Japan for generations. To the USA it is akin to the clothes peg doll. Though wood is the traditional material, in an inspired moment Gregory decided to create his line of Kokeshi's in gemstone and precious metals. See him working on a Kokeshi. Gregore has combined here his exquisite sense of the whimsical and his masterful control of materials. Call for pricing.
