ODLCO is now carrying animal sculptures by Kiyoshi Mino, a farmer and felt craftsman based in Forrest, IL. The sculptures are the culmination of hours of hard work, made from nothing more than a clump of wool and a needle. Kiyoshi likens the process to painting in three dimensions. We are offering both large sculptures (which take over 20 hours each) and more affordable small ones.
Last week we visited Kiyoshi and his wife Emma at Lucky Duck Farm, just a couple hours away from Chicago, where they raise sheep, cows, chicken, ducks, pigs, and grow fields of Asian vegetables.
