Odesa handmade Teddy Bear takes gold at Munster festival
Alla Kotlyar from Odesa received GOLDEN GEORGE, the most prestigious trophy for bear masters at the TEDDYBÄR TOTAL festival.
The figure of a white bear from 'The Gold Compass' by Iorek Byrnison won gold in the category 'Figure or sculpture, inspired by the bear, distinctly differing from classic bears and creative interpretations of the teddy bear, no restriction in the choice of materials and manufacturing technology'.
It is interesting that this is Alla's second victory at the prestigious TEDDYBÄR TOTAL festival. The first one she received last year for The Pilot Bear.
Alla Kotlyar started making toys 11 years ago after leaving a successful pharmaceuticals career.
