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!
