Crocheted Faux Taxidermy Heads by Nothing But a Pigeon

Taylor Hart is a crochet artist based in Austin, Texas. She graduated from Columbus College of Art and Design with a BFA in photography in 2003, specializing in alternative processes. She got introduced to the world of crocheting 9 years ago when she moved to Bastrop from Columbus, Ohio. In the beginning of her career she crocheted amigurumi toys and sold them to friends, and now she makes her own crochet patterns and kits. As a full-time crocheter she creates adorable amigurumi creatures and crocheted taxidermy heads, she calls it "Crochetidermy". She makes a range of woodland animals, safari friends and nautical creatures. These animals come already mounted on a wooden plaque ready to hang on a wall. 

Taylor's work has been featured on Knitting Daily TV, Austinite Magazine and LadyATX Magazine. She published her first pattern book “Crochet Taxidermy, 30 quirky patterns from mouse to moose”. Her crochet taxidermy are available in several stores in Texas as well as on her online store - Nothing But a Pigeon.
