Teddy Bear (small) * 2004 * 29cm x 20cm x 30cm (each) * Rubber Bands, Plastic doll parts *

In the collection of the Nova Scotia Art Bank & Canada Council Art Bank.

There are three bears in this series. (I only have these two images of them, due to my poor image-keeping skills  ; )

These are hollow, and hold themselves up… I made them using a sewing pattern for teddy bears. I created the ‘fabric’: the shaped elastic surface using an additive knotting process, and then ‘sewed’ it together with rubber bands. These are lovely, wobbly, well-weighted little characters.
