Ube #4 Available now!!

The Artist Series is a new project here at Kendama USA. Our goal is to collaborate with talented artists to create Kendamas that are hand painted at a high quality level that could never be duplicated in mass production. We love working with artists and this series was a natural step that we are absolutely thrilled about. These Kendamas are truly one-of-a-kind pieces of art. The hardest part is deciding if you want to put it in a display case, or actually risk playing with it!

We are honored to have Ube Urban collaborate with us on our first ever Artist Series. Ube is a highly skilled industrial designer/painter, and owner of Ube’s Icecream Shop in San Francisco, CA. He is highly sought after for custom paint jobs, and has made quite a name for himself in the Kendama community. All the custom Kendamas in this series are hand painted by Ube himself. There are no duplicates made of the Artist Series designs, so “limited edition” would be an understatement. There is 1 of each. As soon as it’s gone, it’s gone, and the next custom design will be available in it’s place. The intricate detail Ube puts into his work is difficult to capture in photographs or video, and needs to be seen in real life to truly appreciate all the small features.

The 4th Ube custom is an Ozora painted like a deep midnight sky.  A custom blue hue glistens with Ube’s signature ice-cream style paint detailing unlike anything in your collection.

We must stress that these are Kendamas are pieces of art, and are not intended to be children’s toys.  The Artist Series Kendamas use several different materials and paints that are not considered “toy-safe” by US toy standards.  Please enjoy your artwork responsibly.

Artist Series purchases are non-refundable, and shares of the profits go directly to the artist.  Every purchase includes the Artist Series Kendama, an extra string, framed original sketches, and a framed autographed photo.

The 3rd release is a classy wooden Ozora titled “Sea Foam Breeze”. This 2 tone tama has a smooth, subtle fade from light blue to sea foam green. You can almost feel the pacific breeze wafting in from San Francisco bay into Ube’s custom shop. His precision painting style will make a great addition to your Kendama collection.
