Corry started making Teddy Bears in the 80's. She uses fair, traditional and sustainable materials like wool, leather, handmade glass eyes and mohair furs in various colors. The used techniques are traditional, used by factories such as Steiff and Hermann.
All the bears are different, more than a hundred, have a number, a story, are being photographed and drawn in her Book of Bears.

Since the early 80's Corry weekly teaches making bears to a group of enthusiastic Bears Mothers. Traditionally the year is closed with a Bearday where Bears, Bears Mothers and family have a nice Picknicktime together.
Especially for that day Corry writes a Bears Story, illustrates and makes the books in limited edition and gives them to Bears Mothers and family.
