Amerk by Bayside Bears
Cooperstown Artist Bear Collection
Amerk is the Inuit word for “furry”.
He is 17″ tall and made from imported mohair. He is fully jointed and has an additional neck joint to achieve just the right tilt of the head. His face is extensively needle sculpted, clipped and shaded in black for a true polar bear look. He has applied eyelids and a custom sculpted polymer clay nose.
Amerk has Mary Lou’s signature open mouth design with a soft sculpture tongue. His paws are painted and he is stuffed with polyfil and glass beads for a good weight.
Exclusive to Cooperstown Bears.
