ATWELL

I just love to make black bears, but they are such a nightmare to photograph. After numerous attempts I have managed to get a few reasonable pictures. Its a good job we have digital cameras as I could not imagine how much my bill would be for developing film when photographing the black bears.
Well this is the little guy who has caused me so much trouble. Atwell who is one of my Toy-Box Treasures, this little bear is 13 inches tall and has been created with the 1912 Titanic Bear in mind. His eyes are black but have red felt behind, they certainly look as if he is watching you.

I am in the process of designing two very large bears for a shop display, one in particular I am looking forward to making, its a beautiful red one...something a bit more cheery than black:-)

Atwell is off to live in New Jersey with many of his friends, and also has a traveling companion called Amos who has been made by my husband Darren.

  1. Hello.
    Black bears are not only difficult to photograph. They are also difficult to make, so they get a beautiful expression. That is completely managed you. A nice guy.
    Dear greetings from the village of Iris
