Finally, the Amigurumi season has come again!
This year’s World Amigurumi Exhibition date has been decided too!!
Resobox Gallery will be exhibiting more than 3,000 amigurumi made by 125 artists from 47 different countries.
This year’s theme is “Mixed materials” (over 50% of the materials used in the themed piece must be non-regular straight yarn.)
I always prefer to use fur yarn, woolly felt, wood, glass eyes, and beads for amigurumi.
These are my themed creations.
Materials used: Fur yarn, Wood, Glass eyes
“Woody Ami-Wanko (doggy)”
Materials used: Fur yarn, Frill yarn, Wood, Glass eyes, Beads
Materials used: Fur yarn (two different types of fur yarns), Wood, Glass eyes
My father is a woodworker.
Even though he is over 70 years old, he is still very creative and active in his work.
I respect my father as a master craftsman, and he is a source of inspiration in my work as well.
I asked him to make wooden arms and legs for my bears.
It is an art collaboration based on the love between a father and daughter.
Here are my other creations:
“Water Lily light”
Materials used: Lace yarn, LED light
Materials used: Multifilament yarn, Beads yarn
My Amigurumi are excited for their trip to New York!
I pursue the possibilities of Amigurumi and yarn every day.
Amigurumi can evolve into greater things by combining them with other materials so we should try thinking more outside the box!
I think that I will grow as an artist with that thought in mind.
The beginning of the new Amigurumi world is finally here!!
I’m sure you guys will be able to enjoy it a lot.
Please come visit us!
