Technique

Woodendolls

Wooden dolls have separate heads, bodies, and arms and legs carved from paulownia wood, which are assembled using bamboo pegs. Paulownia is low in resin, making it less likely to attract insects, and is also lightweight, strong, and does not deform easily, so it is ideally suited to making dolls.
