What caught your eye?
Each of Mark’s bears has a unique character, with its own body type, pose, expression and personality. The bears are made from a variety of wood from central Virginia, mostly from Amherst County. These bears range in size from 3 to 7 feet tall and are brown or black, happy and waving, cute and cuddly, or tall and imposing. View more bears from past years using the menu on the left.
Mark can carve any type of bear you have in mind. He has had them holding signs, fish and lanterns. Let us know if there is a particular size or style you like. Mark loves to bring new ideas for bear sculptures to life!
