OOAK Paddington bear Winner of the Golden George Award 2021 in the Master Class, category 9
I created a sculpture in clay of a Spectacled bears and developing a pattern based on this clay model to make Paddington, this piece took over 700 hours over 7 1/2 weeks to create.
Nominated for the Golden George in the master class 2021.
Paddington is made in mohair, alpaca, plush and leather for his paw pads.
He has inset glass eyes, an open mouth with hand sculpted individual teeth.
I have also sculpted his nails.
He has a full integral armature including his fingers which permits him to hold many positions and to hold his suitcase and hat, unsupported.
All paddington accessories have been made by myself, which include, refugee swing ticket, toy marmalade sandwiches x 2, the toy marmalade in the jam jar, the suitcase, the Peruvian passport, the scrapbook which has all my research included and a fully lined hat.
The Duffel coat, which I did extensive research on and is hand crafted by myself is post WWII in style and is fully lined.
