Handmade Division ~We are talking about...

~What item do you most treasure made by another artist? ( if there is one) If not, how about what would you *like* to have?~ fun topic this month! For me, I definitely have to say the Japanese doll my grandma made for me. Because she is not only a great artist but she is my roots. It’s little funny to call her “artist” because I bet she never though she is! She is retire teacher. She taught me how to saw when I was six. She do beautiful paper art and many many other crafts. And even though we work in different media, I can definitely see same quality in her work. So million thanks to grandma! I love you:) xoxo

I think our strongest attachments are to objects that evoke our deepest feelings, Natsuko! They communicate what words alone can't say.
