Felted wool – 6.5″ x 7″ x 5.25″
Stephanie create a variety of anotomical studies of Teddy Bears, reverse engineering found bears to created these felted skulls.
The teddy bear is an idea: a docile, cute, friendly invention far removed from the wild animal that inspired it. I create teddy bear anatomical specimens with a pretense of realness to emphasize the artifice of a familiar but unconsidered subject.
