About the Artist:
Thomas Balke greatly impressed Susanne Ludwig on their first date when he gave her a box of chocolates and an antique bear. Unable to ignore the power of a teddy bear, this couple has been united ever since that date. Designing their own teddy bears since 1996, Balu Bears each have a long nose, long limbs, a defined hump and definitely have a dreamy expression their eyes. Made using the finest mohair and filled with wood wool, collectors can be sure Balu Bears are crafted with great pleasure.
