Stuffed Bear

By Olga Mayorova

12½ inches (31¾ centimeters)

In dark garret room among wooden boxes, ski sticks and rusty skates, including unnecessary furniture, rags, newspapers and magazines, behind an old shabby suitcase a bear lay in the dust. Pulling by the ear I brought him to the light. I shook him and blew dust away. Suddenly the bear mumbled something.
Oh, you're talking! - I was delighted.
The bear in my hand was plump, shabby, smelled of dust and old newspapers. And also the bear smelled childhood flit away, candys, Christmas gifts, my mother's laughter, school notebooks, games in the yard, fairy tales, favorite books...
However, you know yourself how magic can smell such toys!

Bear created from vintage plush, stuffed with pine sawdust and weighted with metal granules. He is fully jointed and has his head, legs and arms movable. His eyes are black German glass. He stands and sits himself.
Browny looks like a very old toy, so he has some patches and receding hairline on plush.
There is a silk ribbon around his neck with an antique button and rusty bells.

Browny has a bear certificate.

Hello!
My name is Olga Mayorova. Teddy bears is my passion, pleasure and eternal love. I have been making them since 2012. Before that I was sewing textile dolls for a very long time, however after the first bear was born in my hands the dolls just refuse to come into existence. In my work I apply professional high quality materials as well as vintage and antique universal fabrics and accessories that I search at flea markets all over the globe, among acquaintances and friends. I can’t follow the same pattern too long. My head stores multiple ideas that are crowding and pushing each other being not able to queue in one order. So here I am drawing a new pattern, redoing it again, enlarging noses, shortening paws… and it never stops. Today I create little baby bears in dresses and pants, tomorrow all of a sudden I start sewing a fairy-tale giant bear that I saw in a dream. That is exactly why I never do the same piece twice. I simply won’t be able to.
My bears are insatiable globetrotters; they fly to all sorts of different countries. Every time it is extremely difficult for me to part with them as if I am sending my children in a long trip and understand that we will hardly ever meet again. I am absolutely sure that all my bears are alive with their own characters and secrets. You just need to believe and rest assured you will feel it.
With love,
Olga
