Dough Figurines

Sculpting with flour dough, a traditional folk art with a rich history spanning over 2,000 years, is a cornerstone of Asian cultural heritage. Our group is fervently dedicated to preserving this intricate art form, enhancing it by integrating Western design elements. This innovative fusion results in truly unique and captivating creations. Our skilled artists have proudly showcased their works at a variety of esteemed venues, including cultural and art exhibitions, art fairs, and museums.
