TBAAF - Purchase Directly From International Bear and Doll Artists

Recent Activity
About Me

I DO NOT HAVE A WEBSITE BUT AM A FEATURED ARTIST ON BEARPILE WHERE YOU CAN SEE ALL MY BEARS IN THE FUR!


Most of my bears have hand sculpted porcelain faces -I sculp a face using a modelling compound - a plaster mold is then made and porcelain is poured into the mold to form a cast. The cast is then cleaned and resculpted and fired to a temperature of 1200 degrees .Several more lower temperature firings are done to obtain the colours and delicate details to match the gorgeous German mohairs used to create the bodies.

I also makes the tradition bear using just mohair.

All my bears come from a smoke free home and come with a signed detail swing tag and either an embroidered Jo Bears on the foot or a label stitched into the back seam.

These bears are for collectors and not suitable for children.

All are completely original designs and pattern made by me .

I have been featured in several magazines including Teddy Bear International -Teddy Bear Times and Teddy Bear Scene.

I also have had the honour of designing two bears for Deans artist showcase.
