Felted Bear Sculptures Carry the Weight of the World on Their Back


Past Your Porchlight

Artist Jessie Cun­ning­ham invites us to “Step past your porch light and into the wilds with my soft sculp­ture cre­ations.” Through her shop (apt­ly) called Past Your Porch­light, she fash­ions tiny bears that car­ry the weight of the world on their backs. This isn’t a bur­den to the gen­tle giants—they tote their tiny friends who regal them with sto­ries as they trav­el. “In all of their jour­neys, this world­ly pair knows best that life is bet­ter when you share it with friends. ”

To cre­ate these charm­ing felt­ed crea­tures, Jessie hand stitch­es the bear and sculpts, sands, and primes the oth­er ele­ments. They “fare best on a shelf or desk­top, some­where to safe­ly bring a bit of nature indoors.”

See all of Jessie’s felt hand­i­work in the Past Your Porch­light Etsy shop.
