Original artist bears and other characters created in mohair by award-winning artist Anita Finning.

My name is Anita aka the Bear Maker and I live on a small island in darkest Essex in the Bear Cave. I am the British Bear Artist Award-winning creator of the OOAK Pod Bears, creatures and Elfins who make an appearance searching for their ‘special ones’ in my magical, mystical garden and Bear Cave. My mission at Pod Bears is to create bears and creatures that bring a smile to your face.

All of my bears are completely unique and are created in either Mohair, Alpaca, fabulous faux fur and sometimes a mixture of the above. They feature hand-sculpted Polymer Clay noses, mouths, claws and belly buttons. I work from my own hand-drawn designs and patterns that I have created making every Pod Bear unique and a one-off!  I hand shade fur, taking into consideration lighting and their quirky characters. Bears and creatures are part pellet filled and fully jointed. Other creatures also make an appearance in my family of creations, such as rabbits, dragons, spiders, unicorns and Elfins to name but a few.

Both I and my Pod Bears are over the moon to be taking part in the wonderful Hugglets Online show and can’t wait to welcome everyone.

Please be aware that these creations are collectible items and not suitable for children.
