AT LAST- a comprehensive book covering the bear artists of Australia and New Zealand! Artist Bears -- handmade teddy bears from original designs-are one of the biggest collectables in the world today. And yet these endearing creatures are also one of the newest craft forms, having evolved over the last 25 years or so.
In Australia and New Zealand the art of handmade bears began in the early 1980's, and from less than a handful of 'first generation' bear artists there are more than 100 professionals making bears today.
This book is a tribute to them and their work.
With a foreword by renowned bear authority Linda Mullins, this important book profiles more than 70 artists and includes over 200 superb colour photographs of their work. It will prove an invaluable resource for bear lovers and collectors everywhere, and it will be treasured as a book that recaptures childhood dreams -- and a little magic!
Jennifer Laing has won prizes and awards in every competition she has entered since making her first bear in 1990. She is the founder of The Antipodean Bear Makers Co-op, the largest network of its kind in the southern hemisphere, and the author of the best-selling book and video The Art of Making Teddy Bears. As well as teaching bear-making classes, restoring antique bears and toys, and painting bear portraits on commission, Jennifer works fulltime on her bears to keep up with the demand from collectors.
