Mrs Grayson’s Ted from around 1936 came to me in a serious condition as you can see by the photos. Miraculously has made a full recovery at Pic-Nic-Bears.
The bear came in for repairs needing a completely new right ear, a left ear repair, a new nose and a good clean as she is over 43 years old!
Dear Nicole After meeting you at Hugglets I was drawn to your magical creations, how different and I have not seen anything similar in all my years of collecting, true one of a kind soft sculptures. The detail is exceptional, with so much thought going into your work. You shared the journey you take in producing each creation with over a month of work, a labour of love. Your own story and your journey from your Welsh background, to now living in France bringing the Welsh tales and fantasy into your work. This really shows in the Bears, your passion for difference. I feel honoured to have some of your greatest work in my collection, which I will treasure. The Welsh goddesses are already winning awards for their excellence. Their stories are fascinating, mystical and you have captured their fable and fairy tale existence. I am looking forward to seeing more in the Welsh tales collection. You are living the dream and making your creations, keep creating. I hope others can also really enjoy your work, as I am. You are a pleasure to deal with, being honest and fair. The Celtic Goddess arrived perfect and excellently packaged. All the care you took to ensure not only were the well packaged but that they had the best possible postage service that ensured that they were tracked, insured and signed for, I could not ask for anymore. Thank you also for sharing your work and your stories with me. I wish you every success in creating more amazing bears.
I made a custom order from Nicole and can recommend her if you are searching for one of a kind type. Her customer treatment is also one of a kind and which will give you an experience you will struggle finding somewhere else. She meet all my demands and created a bear beyond my imagination. I am so sure that you will be be very satisfied with the result. Thank you so much!
I was fortunate to meet today and later while having dinner the lovely Nicole Woodward. I had to have a second look at these large sculptures to begin to absorb and understand how good they were so glad I did and it was fascinating hearing the stories behind them. Ones for the wish list.
I would like to thank you for my stunning Bono bear[I was the lady who with her husband were counting our pennies to be able to buy him]. You kindly let me adopt him for the amount that we got together. I am so grateful to you as I truly love him, and have not stopped looking at him since we arrived home. The detail is unlike anything that I have ever seen before, you are remarkably talented. Not only that you are a lovely person and I truly thank you for making my Hugglets day. I am looking forward to seeing what else comes my way from you, I know that if I am lucky enough to get to Hugglets again yours will be the first stand that I aim for. Thank you thank you thank you. I really do appreciate what you did for me yesterday......xx
Nelson Nelson is simply a masterpiece. Sumptuously dressed in a suit of the Royal Navy bristling with decorations he proudly wears his long view of sea. Every detail is accurate and meticulously rendered: the suit, the hat, the missing arm, to the sparse hair, memories of an old injury. It exudes dignity, boldness, and it has the quiet look of the winner. A beautiful blue eyes that captures the attention. The work is accompanied by a very touching little book about the life of Admiral and the genesis of its creation. Succeed in giving such nobility to a bear, it is all the talent of Nicole Woodward. It has humor and respect in this representation Nelson. As in all her creations she managed to breathe life into his character, while striving to perfection details. Great art. Titan With his ears to the wind and Titan smart look is a funny and lively companion. I always feel that will follow me frolicking. He is absolutely adorable.
