The BeaR Company

 

My first bears originated, by chance, in winter 2015. Customers ordered a children's plate; on the edge of which I have modeled a teddy, building blocks and a train. I enjoyed that because I like these old children’s toys. I never expected that it would turn into a whole collector's universe, and that my little figures are demanded all over the world, from New Zealand to Canada. Meanwhile, I combined them with my dishes, put them on bowl edges, tealight holders, coffee cups, tins ... Each figure is a unique piece. At first, they were only bears, and that's why I sold them on the Bear Collector page https://kaieckenbach.bearpile.com/ as “The BeaR Company”, where they can still be found today. But by now, I also make elephants, dogs and other figures...
