have always liked making things – out of paper, cloth, or any old
scraps that came to hand, be it pieces of wire or string, beads, acorns
Of course, you have to find all these things, pick them up, and store
somewhere for who knows how long, because you never know what would
come in handy one day for whatever purpose...
And so this not altogether serious attachment to all sorts of little
had been with me all my life – until one day I discovered a way to
bring together everything I liked, all my abilities, and all the
trifles I had amassed over the years in one occupation: making Teddies.
This discovery made, there was no way back. And so, one by one, my
appeared – each with his own personality.
