Artist - Marnie Pantano

Australian_Flag.png

My name is Marnie Pantano.
I have been making bears now for about 22years.
Ever since l was very little l have loved to create beautiful things!
I knew l wanted to be an artist from the very beginning!
I majored in illustration and painting but also studied design, ceramics and graphic art as well as other creative subjects.
I never really knew how to sew but loved the art of textiles and was interested in learning.
After a few very basic bear making and embroidery classes I became obsessed with evolving my skills as a bear artist.
I entered many competitions in Australia and became a multi award winning artist. I have never looked back.
I hand stitch my bears and spend endless hours, weeks, months working on some of my pieces in which l have incorporated some of my art skills as well as sculpting, beading, embroidery, and painting etc.
I am deeply committed to growing as an artist and using my work to bring great joy to those who love and appreciate it.
I have taught for many years both bears and art and craft and met some of my closest friends l have today through doing so.
I do hope you enjoy viewing my work.
Bear hugs and love.
Marnie.

Mama Owl Etherial is 35 cm (13.8 inches) long and approximately 15 cm (6 inches) wide so she is quite solid

On her stand she is 28 cm (11 inches) tall
Her babies Celeste and Orion are approximately 13 cm (5+ inches) long
All three owls’ heads are hand sculpted with high quality clay, as are Etherial’s feet
Please note - babies Celeste and Orion DO NOT have feet – this is intentional as they are designed to snuggle in their nest
All three owls are made of beautiful soft mohair
Their bodies are completely hand stitched
They have glass eyes
They are glass pellet, pebble and Dacron filled so they are quite heavy in the body for balance
They are completely hand painted

Etherial stands on a block covered in raw silk
The trio’s clothing is all made of the same stunning raw silk
The stand has a cluster of flowers to which l have added hand made clay hearts on recycled wire
The beading (which consists of old and new beads and buttons) that is sewn all around the hats and chest pieces took endless hours to create, with a lovely dense effect which l have aged
The babies sit in an adorable nest
This set would make a spectacular Christmas centre piece but is also so beautiful to display all year around!
This would have to be ONE of my most FAVOURITE pieces
It truly is magical and speaks to my soul
One of my best.
