Where is Summer?

We have had a remarkable amount of rain so far this summer, but despite this, more in hope than expectation, I have named my latest black bear cub 'Summer'.  She is a cutie, made of black Schulte alpaca and has a locline neck and spine, wired arms and four nut and bolt joints.  Her eyes are black glass and she has leather eyelids.  Her nose has been hand-moulded by myself using epoxy clay.  She is stuffed with Bouncifill and contains a calico bag of stainless steel balls.  Her pawpads are made from brown glove leather.  She is equally happy standing on all fours or sitting like a teddy.  Summer is on her way to California!

The Show has Started

The Friends of Teddy online show has now started.  I have created five pieces for the show.  They all hark back to earlier times and look great alongside classic teddy bears.  I had so much fun drawing out their patterns and making them, including their wooden trolleys.  They will be available for adoption, at until Sunday evening. 

Now adopted and heading for Maryland.
Now adopted and heading for Ohio.
