PRODUCT CATALOGUE - OPEN MOUTH BEARS

     
   
Name:
 
Open Mouth Bears
 
Description:
The photographs are all examples as all the featured bears have been sold. About 10 years ago I spent some time developing our own version of an open mouth. It should allow me to create a friendly expression, no teeth or tongue, just a little bit open so that it achieve a comfortable balance between reality and a bear that you can still hug. A real bear only opens its mouth wide to catch fish or show aggression so not appropriate for one of our bears. I believe that what we developed is just right and that the result is in good proportion to the bearís head. Personally I think that for the most natural look, an open mouth looks best on bears from 40cm (16in) and larger. However, of course it is possible to make a smaller bear with an open mouth but the smallest size of the leather cord that I use for the lips is 1mm. Obviously the smaller the bear the larger this 1mm cord seems and the mouth becomes too obvious.
