Kokedama Balls

Kokedama Balls

We have long admired the ancient botan­i­cal prac­tices of Bon­sai & Ike­bana. After all, our par­ents were mar­ried in Japan, our broth­er was born in Japan and so we feel an affec­tion and con­nec­tion to this cul­ture. We won­dered to our­selves, “Could we make an Arty-Mossy Japan­ese Ball whose ori­gins dat­ed back to the ear­ly 1600s?” Our response was,  “You Bet.” Or to put it into Google Trans­late for Japan­ese: あなたは賭ける (Ana­ta-wa-kakeru).
