Custom Constellation Bear
Hello and thankyou for stopping to rest at The Whispering Wild.
These totemic constellation sculptures are made to order. They take many hours of creation and are all one of a kind. I don't use patterns for these designs but instead allow my intuition to flow when creating the form of these iconic creatures.
The bear in this image has the constellation 'Ursa Minor' also known as 'Little Bear' upon her fur. She is made from a beautiful mix of fibres, beading and embroidery. The large star she sleeps with is made from an old form of sculpting known as spun cotton. It has then been painted with matching acrylic paints.
You can choose your preferred constellation from the drop down list on this listing, all zodiac signs are available as well as the Ursa Minor (see images), Ursa Major constellations or just a random design. Due to the variety in the constellations and the density of stars some constellations will obviously sit differently upon the body. Your purchase will not work unless you choose a constellation.
The name plaque is hand painted with watercolour and hand written with ink. All name plaques will say 'Bear of Stars' unless previously discussed.
Please note that this listing is for a custom order slot, this means that I will do my very best to create your bear in a similar way to the one depicted but due to the organic nature of how I create the fibres, colours and form may vary slightly.
Please allow me up to four weeks to make your sculpture, this means it may not be with you for Christmas. Once complete I will email you a photo of the finished piece to make sure you are happy with the design, If you are not happy I can refund the cost but I will not be able to refund after postage due to it being a custom order.
The frame she resides in is handmade by a highly skilled carpenter. I have then aged it with a gorgeous wax and attached a hanging piece should you wish her to sit upon your wall but she will stand quite comfortably on a mantlepiece. The frame is signed and dated on the reverse.
Her little name plaque is vintage inspired with a hand painted watercolour insert and handwritten ink name.

This is not a toy and therefore not intended for anyone under the age of 14 years.
Postage is calculated for a select few destinations, if postage is overestimated for any reason I will refund you the difference after posting via Paypal. If ordering more than one item I will combine postage and refund any difference. Please make sure your paypal postage address is correct at time of purchase.
If purchasing from outside of the UK there is no guarantee this will reach you before christmas. Also it may incur customs taxes which I am afraid are out of my control.
Thankyou for taking the time to look at my artwork, much love and magic x
