Bin Temari???

This is a picture I came across in an article about temari whilst cruising the web this week. Click the link to see more about Bin Temari. They are just beautiful... can you work out how they do it?? There is an interview here which will come up in translated English but if you read Japanese it might make more sense if you return it to Japanese.
Also a fellow Aussie temari maker, Rod from Sydney, has a great blog you could look at in which he shows Japanese textiles he produces including Kumihimo. Rod's blog is really informative and there is the most amazing braided poem in one of his posts. It took my breath away.
