    Amigurumi

    February 20, 2009

    Amigurumi (編みぐるみ, lit. knitted stuffed toy) is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll. Amigurumi are typically animals, but can include artistic renderings or inanimate objects endowed with anthropomorphic features. -wiki

    As I slowly develop this skill in crochet to create little characters, they will eventually wander into the industrial and blissful pastures of 2-dimensional space.

    Alden attained a BFA in Printmaking from The Alberta College of Art & Design in 1997.
