My name is Viky Petermann. I was born in Spain and came to live in Cape Town (South Africa) as a young woman. I fell in love with this beautiful city and I met my husband Erik while studying at Cape Town University. I have a degree in Fine Art and a Diploma in Graphic Arts.
two beautiful children, a 5-year-old boy, Hakon and a 16-month old girl,
Kyra. I started making bears when I fell pregnant with my son 6 years ago.
At that time it was very difficult to find bear making supplies in this
country so I was forced to improvise with different fabrics and other materials.
Three years ago, again pregnant !! I discovered a whole world of teddy
bear making suppliers on the web and at the same time discovered a new
little shop in Cape Town which stocked all my requirements and of course
among this I discovered mohair and upholstery velvet.
I have always made my own patterns and most of my bears are one of a kind although sometimes I make small limited editions. Every bear is special and a lot of love and care goes into giving each of my creations its own distinct personality. I find the faces to be particularly important and each of my bears is extensively soft sculpted to create its special look.
