"Fozzy Bear" by Sam Eiler
Handmade puppet (Fur, felt, foam, wool felt, plastic spoons, and straw) | 22" tall
Sam Eiler’s family realized he was an artist at three years old, when his mother found him carving SpongeBob SquarePants into their dining room table. Eiler (b. 2002) continues to be inspired by illustrated characters and works in a wide variety of two and three-dimensional mediums, including drawing, ceramics, and puppet-making. Eiler’s work with puppets has evolved from a simple sock turned Kermit to fully realized felt and wire personalities.
Eiler has been a studio artist at SAGE Studio since December 2018.
