"I believe that among all hobbies, the passion for ball-jointed dolls is the most unusual one. Many of the deepest emotional experiences are associated with these fragile and graceful creatures. Along with them we can discover our own magical world, immerse ourselves inside and perceive richness and eventfulness of this other imaginary life. A doll, and especially, a flexible doll, is a tiny being that can give a force impetus to deep subconscious energies, vitalizing of which may be perceived as a flash of inspiration, as surprising discovery of something pleasant and attractive. And that's why someone who experienced a true aesthetic shock the first time he took a BJD in his hands will never be the same person again".
