Grab & Growl

Even a reclusive bear can be coaxed to hang out and hold your keys and glasses. And when it isn't on valet duty, it's an endearing work of wall art all by itself. Handmade from solid walnut by grizzly-loving craftsman Alex Ahrens, it's finished with a naturally protective blend of oils and waxes and includes easy-to-use wall anchors. Alex finds inspiration in the remarkable natural designs of animals. Install his bear near the door so you can grab your gear on the way out for a day of foraging. Handmade in Austin, Texas.

“Horns and antlers, long necks and long bodies…trunks that reach the ground–the uniqueness of animals has always interested me.”

It may seem like a long way from aerospace engineering to creating animal-inspired designs, but Alex Ahrens finds common ground in precision and attention to detail. His high-tech training gave him an eye for spotting flaws—useful when creating products that people will interact with. Further time spent as a product and packaging designer gave him an appreciation for practical, well-designed objects that are attractive as well as user-friendly. "The uniqueness of animals has always interested me,” Alex observes. "Finding ways to blend functionality with their unique features inspires a lot of my work."
