While I was working on this one, I was thinking of what its name could be. “Dancing”’ or “boogie” bear came to mind, but I didn’t want to just name it like all the other bear pieces, so I began to think along the same lines that I think about with my teapots… and this one came to me.
I went and looked up the actual meanings for “bipolar” and the first one was “having two poles”. I didn’t need to go much further, as this was good enough for me!
