Aussergewöhnliche Bären mit ausdrucksstarken Porzellan Gesichtern

Die Bären und Puppen von Jo Nevill sind ganz anders. Mit großen Augen schauen sie einen an mit einem Blick, der zu Herzen geht. Eine Mischung aus Hundegesicht und Bär und manchmal soooo traurig dass man sie am liebsten in den Arm nehmen und trösten würde... Hier ist eine Auswahl der Arbeiten dieser vielseitigen Künstlerin.

Die Ahnlichkeit ist unverkennbar

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 bears using just mohair and a range of old loved out of the attic style bears. 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.------ I do a lay-away service up to three or four months depending on the price of the bear.If payments fall through all previous payments are none refundable. No lay-away on 8" bears.PLEASE ASK FOR DETAILS BEFORE ORDERING
