professional has to cut loose once in a while -
hence, Elizabeth Berrien's collection of Whimsy and Weirdness.
commissioned by virtuoso teddy bear designer Lauries Weltsch of Fools
Gold Bears. Elizabeth recalls, "Laurie is a good friend, and an expert
at the form and soul of the Bear. In describing what she wanted, she'd
say, kind of like a grizzly or kodiak, but different..."
"I felt I knew what Laurie wanted, but couldn't find a refernce image
of the type of bear that came to mind. Finally I admitted - the spririt
of bear in my mind was from a 'Little Golden Book' of the Three Bears,
back in the 50's. Laurie said, 'That's exactly what I want!'"
Pigasus, James Michael Harris
Collection, Tasmania. Dr. Harris wanted his own flying pig - a
life-size, winged Yorkshire sow. People's Choice award, Humboldt County
Coat Hanger Spider
Web, one of a handful created
since a professional costumer requested one to hang in her closet.
Elizabeth enjoys studying the works of orb-weaving garden spiders,
whose absolute mastery leaves her in awe.
