Anthropomorphic animals, dolls and quirky creatures
Handmade pieces are always infused with character, rendered through the maker’s marks, the perfect imperfections, and the detail and patination that come when something is crafted with love. But nowhere is this character more evident than in the anthropomorphic animals and objects, quirky creatures, folk art miniatures and heirloom dolls that are knitted, stitched, carved and built from the imagination of makers.
Here are some of our favourites. Discover more on Folksy.
