Dorodango : The Japanese Art of Making Mud Balls, Hardback Book

Dorodango : The Japanese Art of Making Mud Balls Hardback


The exquisite Japanese hikaru dorodango, or shiny mud ball, is created by rolling earth by hand into a perfect sphere and polishing it until it gleams.

Not only are the results truly impressive, but this calm and meditative practice, once a playground game, has been rediscovered as a peaceful pastime.

Known for inducing flow, the ultimate state of happiness, this simple art is being adopted by people of all ages.

Alongside beautiful photographs of the process, master dorodango maker Bruce Gardner covers every aspect of making and finishing your dorodango, accompanied by inspiring words on the mindful qualities of this earthy activity.
