THE HAMM’S BEER BEAR
Sometimes a logo or figure just brings a smile to your face, and the Hamm’s Beer Bear falls into that category. It is a familiar icon from the past, and it was a real pleasure to bring it to life as a three dimensional piece.
After settling on the dimensions for the piece, the first step was to create a base shape of wax to begin carving by hand.
With the basic piece carved out, the final step before casting was to add the texture to the fur of the bear.
From the finished wax, I created a series of ornamental pieces which included some sterling silver paper weights.
