It was great to go back to Germany again to the TeddyBar Total event, over 350 stalls there for all the teddy bear collectors to drool over, including of course lots with materials and props for the artist to linger over.
As you know, my Clockmaker had been nominated for the Golden George Award in Category 7, we were all so excited on the Saturday evening as we got ready for the Dinner and Awards Ceremony!
Called on to the stage with the other nominees, it was such a tense moment, but unfortunately not the Golden George this time, I will have to wait to hold the 20cm bronze and be satisfied again with the nominees head. And yes, I am very satisfied, it is an honour to receive the accolade out of the many participants
The standard again was extremely high, the miniatures are particularly exquisite, I don’t know how the artists make such small size pieces!
I must try harder in 2020, I am trying to think what I can do, its very difficult after seeing so many really good ideas in Germany.
