“If I were to write a book about nesting dolls” says Golden Cockerel’s chief nesting doll designer Misha Yudin, “I’d not necessarily write about how dear or how beautiful they are, but about how difficult they are to make, what tedious, painstaking work it takes.”
This comes from the man who has dedicated his last 15 years to nesting doll production; to say he knows what he’s talking about is an understatement.
In 2001 we invited him to oversee our matryoshka workshop, where now he wears many hats: chief designer, artistic teacher, productivity manager, even creative visionary. His signature belongs on each of the countless dolls that we produce.
