Flo

Dur­ing these freez­ing days there came into life on my work table here: a lit­tle bear. Meet Flo! This lit­tle bear is pre­tend­ing to be an old and bat­tered one. Stand­ing approx­i­mate­ly 6inches (14 cm) plus his bun­ny-hat, he is an OOAK artist bear, lov­ing­ly hand­made by Ate­lier Laven­del, using  my designs and high-qual­i­ty nat­ur­al mate­ri­als. ooak artist bears bunnies: Meet Flo, OOAK artist vintage style bear by Atelier Lavendel.

It feels won­der­ful soft, warm and fluffy. His orig­i­nal glass eyes are hand­made in the Lauscha glass man­u­afac­ture, Ger­many. I hand embroi­dered his nose with cot­ton embroi­dery floss. I used organ­ic dried wood shav­ings to stuff his body and limbs and added to his chub­by bel­ly some steel pel­lets, safe­ly placed with­in a cot­ton bag, for more love­ly weight. Flo is sym­pa­thet­i­cal­ly aged, using sev­er­al tech­niques, and hand paint­ed with non-tox­ic artist oil colours. His ful­ly and loose­ly joint­ed arms, legs and head are mov­able and pose able. I intend­ed this bear as a lit­tle trea­sure to dis­play and to love or as a spe­cial heir­loom toy to an old­er child for gen­tle play.

Flo is  now avail­able here .
