"Black Cat" by Keiko Araki
3.5 x 5 inches
“Black Cat” is a blue-eyed, black cat wearing a blue necklace with a pendant. Notice the interested eyes and distinctly cat-like stance – she’s just itching for a loving, forever home, like yours! Rest this piece on a ledge, like a windowsill or a bookshelf, such as a real cat might do, and enjoy the sparkle she emanates. While she is small and looks quite delicate, she isn't flimsy. (As Black Cat is made out of ceramic, she shouldn't be roughly handled.)
Keiko Araki incorporates traditional Japanese handicraft techniques in her doll creations. Her dolls incorporate Asian beauty and structure with sensitivity to modernity.
