I am Shortcake by Hisa Kato, Japan


This whimsical, little cat bear is made of hand-dyed mohair, so sparse it is almost bald. He has blue vintage shoe button eyes and a red nose on his moulded resin muzzle. Wire-jointed, he comes cosily ensconced in a child’s shoe, hand-painted by Hisa (to suggest pink chocolate) and decorated with whirls of cream. Cookie. On the sock hang two small paintings (one of Alfonzo, the other patisserie) both painted by Hisa. This Shortcake is number 2 (and our last) of a limited edition made exclusively for Teddy Bears of Witney.
