    This is something my friend and I made out of KenCo all-american cherry kens and tamas. It says PLAY if you can't tell.

    IMG_2986.JPG A friend of mine and I hand turned these two tamas. Half beech(one of them stained) and the other half is made of old skateboard decks. They weigh around 85g.

    @Angelo Saček those tamas are really cool! I think the one on the right will last longer if you play em

    Thanks guys :)
    @htimSxelA they are still intact. Most of the kens I made were close to 70g, so I still don't have a matching one. I'd expect the right one to last longer too since most of the impacts occur on the side where the hole is. It also has a better surface finish.

    Here's another one (+Alex Smith tama lurking from the bottom shelf).

    Post here your kendama related art: drawings, hand-painted kendama, jewelry, artsy t-shirts or even logos, etc. Let us know if there's a story behind the piece or what makes it special to you. If there's a link to the artist's other work post that too so we can check out different projects they might have.

    Here are a few items from a local artist in the Philippines, Christine Santos. Check here for her Instagram. She's done everything from commercial artwork to shoes and even a wedding dress in conjunction with a local designer.

    Don't think this one has a name but I always think of it as the "Shaman Kendama."


    I think this was her very first painted kendama. It's been played a lot and still hasn't chipped.


    This one was called Aztec and though it was intended as a collector's item it was played hard; the tama outlived at least one ken already.

    The artist paints various object or people, like elephant, portrait....
    He is using the neck of the beer to draw "circles" on a canvas or any support
