BACK TO SCULPTURE

This was my first animal sculpture, it was commissioned in secret as a birthday present from a husband to his wife, he wanted a bear that she would want to hug and specified that it had to be stylistically different to the many other animal sculptures they already had. By arrangement I installed it in secret at their home near Tenterden in Kent whilst they were away on holiday and sent his wife pictures and videos to show what was waiting for her when they returned.
