Hi, I am Oz, the creator of OzBears.
I have been making collectable "teddy bear" animal sculptures since 2014.
I have a degree in Fine Arts and previously worked as a ceramic artist, before switching to a process called "needle felting".
All of my creations are one of a kind originals, each taking several days of work to complete. I aim to make the animals as lifelike as possible, paying great attention to the smallest details.
My sculptures are 100% handmade, including the noses and claws, which I sculpt myself. I am constantly experimenting with new techniques to find an ever more realistic result, as my style evolves.
I love to make all types of animals, but especially dogs because of their unique character. I have a particular soft spot for English Bulldogs! To view these and more, please see my "adopted gallery".
