This new bear is so good looking. The firing is marvelous, as the detailed design elements just glisten. Johnathan describes this new work: “The bears will be hibernating soon so it’s nice to see them one last time before they do. This piece with designs was something I designed with no plan in mind. Just visual presence in the moment. Create as I go, what looks good to my eye at that exact moment. The wavy lines signify water, the fish are river trout and the bear paws are the markings symbolizing a black bear.” There is wonderful motion to this piece – with the spirals and the fish “floating”
