Crafted for the purposes of material collaboration and hands-on exploration, artist and designer Rachel Ciavarella created Morris—a stuffed anglerfish you can turn inside out. The invertible fish is made from a creative combination of materials that encourage touch such as felt, sateen, chiffon, faux sherpa, canvas, and fleece. Combined they create Morris’s bones, fins, teeth, and various innards seen when the blue fish is reversed.

The stuffed animal was originally created as a student project, but after receiving an influx of interest Ciavarella started a Kickstarter campaign to support a large run of the fish. You can see Morris in action in the GIF below. (via Creative Boom)
