This adorable carving of a Mama Black Bear cuddling her cub is all one piece, carved out of pine.  It measures about 32" tall and is 19" wide at the widest.  It weighs 78# and is hollowed out in the bottom to make it lighter for shipping and easier to move around.  It is made by artist Andy Kosel from The Country Workshop in Red Lodge, Montan

 

Custom orders are always welcome!

Included with each bear is a care tag giving you instructions on how to keep your bear looking as good as new!

THE BEAR IN THE MAKING: 
 

Our  bears are carved out of pine.  They are cut out with a chainsaw and then placed in a kiln to dry. Once the drying process is complete, we continue to detail them using various grinders and sanders, as well as carving knives. 
 

We then mix  pigment with Marine Spar Varnish to give the bear its color. After doing the detail painting on the face and paws (if needed), we then clearcoat the entire piece with the spar varnish which makes  your bear suitable for the great outdoors as well as in the house!

Most of our bears (this one too) have a relief cut up the back to help relieve any possible stress in the log as the wood expands and contracts throughout the seasons. This is a very normal occurance, and in this way most of the expansion is directed towards the cut which lessens the chance (and hopefully eliminates the chance) of cracks in undesireable places.
