Susan Donaj creator of 'The Wild Things'

A word from Susan Donaj
Creator of 
'The Wild Things'
Bearcrafter for more than 30 years


"My name is Susan Donaj and I'm a 52 year
old German bear maker. When I was 15 years old, I made my first bear which was more a dog than a bear, but from this moment I was addicted and over the years my hobby turned more and more into a profession. 

Susan Donaj

These days a lot of new bears come into the world in the attic of our home where my studio is located. 


My three cats are a great inspiration for my Wild Things because I love these sweet, helpless and innocent faces and I try to give every bear this expression. 


When I'm not behind the sewing machine you will find me horse-riding, creating mixed media journal pages or reading Guild news.



 To be a part of the Guild is wonderful because it is a great place for information around the bear world and to meet people with the same interests."
