Thomas Muldoon by Barbara Anne Cunningham, UK circa 2020
Medium-sized, Thomas Muldoon is a relatively sober bear by Barbara Anne’s usual wacky standards. Made of wavy and distressed mohair, subtly hand-dyed in shades of gold, brown and purple, he has hand-coloured, glass eyes and velvet paw pads, coloured to blend with his mohair. His nose is stitched so that, too blends with his mohair. He is softly and heavily filled with a mixture of glass beads, plastic pellets and polyester stuffing. Carefully looked after and as new, he has Barbara-Anne’s stitched-in label and a named and numbered 1 of 1 card label.
