  • DORODANGO

    414

    Evening all! I came across an old Pip about Hikaru Dorodango, the Japanese art of moulding a mud ball into a perfect sphere by hand. I bring it up again here 7 years on because perhaps it is more pertinent than ever. If we imagine a continuum of what we do now on the left, and where we want to be and what we want to do on the right, I wonder how far along you would plot your position? I suspect not even halfway. But what if we could only find the time for admirable pursuits? I admit that making mud balls is at the extreme right end.

Anyway, the Pips must be Pipped! So here we are. It seems that there is no other reason for the month December other than Christmas Day, at least in my house. I’m not complaining because I love Christmas with the same enthusiasm as my daughters. Suitably in the mood let’s start with this poem that comes around every year…

    Evening all. A proper write-up in Fratello – Mr N is a good writer – a line like “There is a genuineness and earnestness to everything Giles Ellis designs. “ makes me walk a little taller. Read the whole piece here. https://www.fratellowatches.com/schofield-treasure-watch/
