When a shop asks me to create three lovely big bears to showcase, I am always delighted to oblige! Robert at 'The Bear Shop' in Norwich is one such super shop owner and he is an absolute pleasure to work with.
For this order, I opted to take traditional design through to modern classic, for my group of shop exclusive bear buddies.
As you can see, Hugo is a notably traditional fellow and his pals Natty and Buddy, although still undeniably classic bears, have a slightly more contemporary edge with their fuller figures and expressive hand painted glass eyes.
Hopefully these three bears will offer 'The Bear Shop' in Norwich something to meet all customer tastes!
