Enomoto says, “These stuffed animal fellows were born from cloth gathered from various places and are connected to some places, some things, some people.” Much in the way a communal quilt will share essence of all who participate, Enomoto’s animals create joyful and intimate personalities from discarded bits of many people’s lives.
