i am borrowing a quote from one of my favorite commenters when i say that these precisely crafted works from wisconsin textile artist amy arnold for her company peepwool are sweetie creepy. or should i say grotesque and exuberant? either way i love them. they are crafted of recycled felted wool and assorted cloth accoutrements, and are so masterfully sewn that their emotions really show through.
