Birthday Swap with Kati Kainulainen

Last month, we posted on our blog a swap proposal for my birthday in April.

We are very excited to receive 2 emails from different artist who are interested to do a swap with us.

Today we would like to share our first swap with Ms Kati Kainulainen.

Profile about Kati:
Kati is a talented ceramic and glass designer based in Kuopio, Finland. She loves everything tiny and one of her dearest hobbies are doll houses and miniatures in scale 1:12.

She has been a miniature & ceramics artist for over 10 years. She uses plaster molds and liquid clay in her works.

Miniature Ceramic Art by Kati Kainulainen

Kati sent me a few sets of miniature ceramics pottery & a bath tub for our birthday and in return, we sent her a 2.5 inch tall miniature kitty named Miuku-Mauku.

You may view more of Kati's works and creations on her blog:


Miuku-Mauku is named by Kati as it sounds like Miau which symbolises cat. This is our very first time creating a small jointed animal and it's pretty challenging to create one due to it's small size. We are very pleased with our first attempt to make a miniature cat specially for Kati and she is pleased with him too.

Miuku-Mauku is now on his way to Finland to met his new mum.

We want to take this opportunity to thank Kati for the wonderful gifts! We are happy to have her miniatures added into our collection, and soon we will look into expanding and exploring the world of minis!

Look at Miuku-Mauku standing in the bath tub and having a tea party with items all made by Kati. He looks very happy doesn't he?

We look forward to our 2nd swap with Ms Susan Leigh, an Australian artist, so stay tuned!
Thank you for visiting us today, have a wonderful day!

Hugs, Wayne

Fun Fur Day 13 March 2016

The Fun Fur Day last Sunday attracted a total of 14 people. This was our very first time having such a big crowd!

We had friends from Hungary, Saudi Arabia, Italy, China and Malaysia. As most of the attendees were new to the group, Wayne gave a short introduction of the Singapore Teddy Bear Club. It was truly a wonderful experience as all of us shared our experiences and learn different countries cultures.

The gathering was held at Joe & Dough, which was spacious for us to display our Teddy Bears while at the same time enjoy good coffee and pastries.

It was the first time for the new people namely, Peter (Hungary), Adularahman (Saudi Arabia), Fangzhu (China), Anna (Russia), Serena (Italy) and Hayley (Malaysia) to make close contact and mingle with Teddy Bear Artists and Artist Bears. They were pleasantly surprised to find such a niche community in Singapore and were intrigued by the various types of Teddy Bears on display.

They began to mingle with the regulars to learn more about the process of bear making and what makes us come together to share this art.

Wayne also shared and gave them a brief insight on the types of materials used to create a teddy bear and the different styles of teddy bears made by different artists.

At the end of the day, everyone gathered to take a group photo with the Teddy Bears.

We want to thank everyone who attended the event and look forward to seeing everyone again soon in the next Fun Fur Day!

Make-a-Monkey Workshop February 2016

Last month, we have a student joining us to learn how to create a monkey.

It was Philip's first time sewing a monkey. One of the challenges he encountered was placing the different facial pieces of the monkey together.

However as he had some basic sewing experience from the previous bear-making workshops, he was able to sew the monkey without much difficulty.

In the first session, Philip stitched the pieces of fur together and completed the monkey's head. The following week, he made the tail and joint the monkey together.

After applying the finishing touches to the face, hands and feet, Philip posed for a picture with the monkey.

Philip appears very pleased with his new creation! We look forward to the next lesson where he will learn to create a miniature bear!

Hugs, Wayne
