Japanese art of Hikaru Dorodango

Buck the Cubicle series from P2 Photography

American, Bruce Gardner, was motivated to learn Dorodango, a Japanese art form in which soil and water are shaped into a delicate shiny sphere.

The word doro-dango translates as mud (doro-), dumpling (dango). Hikaru means shining. The shining refers to the glossy finish of the sphere.
