What is an Artist Bear?

A term typically used to describe Teddy Bears that are often handmade and hand finished by an individual
They are made in limited quantities and are valued by bear collectors.
There is no ‘Teddy Bear Panel’ to decide what is an artist bear.
That is ultimately left to the collector to decide.
Award-Winning Artist Bears are very different from any other bears.
They capture your heart and make you feel so full of love that you must bring them home.
They are handmade by artists who dedicated their life professionally to design original works of art.
These bear artists have achieved standards recognised in competitions and awards.
The bears, like paintings, are only limited to a few and most of the time, one-of-a-kind.
Their prices are always a little bit higher, which is why our bears are exhibited with prestige. Visit are Gallery to see more examples or go to our adoption page→ to see if there is a bear waiting for a new home
