LOOKY...can you believe it...a new dumpling!!! This poor little bear has been in pieces on my worktable for months just waiting to be a bear. Poor thing...but I think he was worth the wait. Here are some quicky preview photos. I'm in the process of shopping for a light tent and lights. All this dragging my stuff outside for photo ops at just the right lighting times is for the birds...tweet tweet. :O)

Meet BERT just in time for Halloween, although, he didn't want to dress up in a costume. He wanted everyone to meet him as a real bear no gimmicks...just BERT. BERT stands tall at 9 inches. He's stuff firmly with polyfil, glass pellets and a few stainless steel bb's in his belly for a nice hefty weight. Bert's fur is a nice thick pile german mohair in a rich chocolate brown and I've hightlighted his wool felt footpads and face using a dry brush technique in black. BERT's cute little nose has been carefully stitched with black embroidery floss and then sealed with a non-yellowing matte sealer to protect it for years to come. He is 5-way cotterpin jointed for ease in posing.

If you are interested in adopting BERT, his adoption fee is $110 with free shipping to US. Of course international buyers are always welcome. Just email me!!!

Thanks for peeking in on BERT.

Handsome boy! Hello Bert! You have my sympathy with the outdoor photographing of bears ... I keep getting soggy slippers and the light just doesn't work at this time of year ... I reckon I'll have to get to grips with an indoor set up too, sounds complicated though!
