Kumi Hirasaka matchsticks

27 May 2013 / ,

Who says matchsticks have to be boring and mundane? Certainly not the people at Kokeshi Matches (rightly named after the wooden Japanese dolls without arms or legs), who produce witty, cute, and entertaining matchstick designs for every mood. Designed by Osaka based artist Kumi Hirasaka, her flare for putting a face to fire makes me want to take up smoking (maybe not), or candles, or simply start a collection of these brightly colored matches for my own. One thing is for sure, you’ll never look at matches the same again, so pick-up your own at http://www.kokeshi-m.com.
