Ursa the Bear - I'm falling in love

 These bears are from David Weeks Studio and you can buy one (there's a small and a large) at Tweek
They are made in Brooklyn using Beechwood and I've fallen completely in love with them. They are quite big, the large is 13.5 inches (34.29cm) x 6 inches (15.24cm) x 5.75 inches (14.605cm) and the smaller (called Ursa Minor) is 5.5 inches (13.97cm) x 10 inches (25.4cm) x 4.5 inches (11.43cm). I think it's the size that makes them so divinely tactile - I would absolutely love to hold one.
There are also other animals in the range. In some places they are described as toys but to me they are so sculptural, I think Ursa the Bear would keep my artist's mannequin company.
