" A Small Polo Obsession…" Sculpture and art by Joseph Vaughan
Another classic in the very popular ‘Teddy Bear’ line. Dubbed the ‘Grandpa’ bear sweater from 1992, this is one of the rarer designs, the ‘Sit Down Bear’ being the most prevalent.This miniature is construction almost entirely from modelling clay with just the miniscule design ‘RL 1992’ on the bear’s own sweater being completed using acrylic paint. The decision to use just clay was based on the the fact the sweater is a knit and therefore clay would mimic the ‘knitted’ aspect to the original. The slightly loose feel to the bears features and shape from using clay again reflect the original’s design and feel.
