The Witney 2022 Bear is the seventeenth in our series of annual Witney bears. Like his forbears, he looks old.
This clown bear is inspired by a one made nearly thirty years ago by one of our favourite American artists, Marsha deHaven.
Made of ultra-sparse and distressed, cinnamon-gold mohair with black safety eyes, a red and black, stitched nose he has red felt showing through ‘age holes’ in his felt paw pads. The Witney 2022 Bear has bells on his red felt clown hat and another on his polka dot ruff collar.
