Take-G | Wooden Toys | Takegi Nakagawa | Japan

Take-G toys are made using an ancient Japanese craft known as Yosegi-Mokuzougam or marquetry | Basically the artist inlays different textured and coloured pieces of wood and other natural materials to create his figures | Takegi uses the highest quality woods such as maple, walnut, cherry and white ash in order to create these stunning toys that are not only unique and beautiful, but extremely long lasting | On the downside, the cool futuristic robots and child-like figures shown above are sold only at craft exhibitions, however Takegi Nakagawa does make a great set of construction blocks that are available to the public | Take a look at www.take-g.com to find out more.
