It has been quite a while since I last posted, and our summer is now nearly over. I promise I have been busy making bears and not sitting idle, Jacqui makes sure of that LOL!!! I am sure she has eyes in the back of her head. I have been working on commissions and have not been able to put a bear out to show
collectors. This last weekend I set some time aside to rectify this and Davenport was created. He is one of my 15 inch bears made from a rich copper and a coconut cream on a chocolate brown backing, German mohair. He has been heavily aged and certainly looks as if he has been really well loved and played with for many years, but is still ready to receive plenty more hugs.
I am very pleased that Davenport has been well received and sold immediately he was released. I am hoping to put a bit more time to one side this bank holiday weekend to make another bear, but it all depends on how I get on with this commission I am working on as I have a lot of ageing to do on it yet, so when I am happy with it, I will try and break off to make one to release.
Since my last post my wife Jacqui has won an award with her bear Prestbury in the URSA's which is wonderful news as she has now won awards in this competition for the last 3 years. At the moment voting is taking place to determine whether Prestbury will be 1st, 2nd or 3rd, if you have a spare moment and would like to vote for Prestbury please click HERE to be taken to the voting page to place your vote.
