What follows are several picture of a marionette I carved out of linden wood and a video I made with my fellow students while studying with Mirek Trejtnar, an acclaimed Czech puppeteer.
Here is a ‘trick skeleton marionette’ I carved from Linden wood also under the guidance of Mirek Trejtnar. The ‘trick’ is that the skeleton can appear to fall apart and then be snapped up together again. The puppet is based off of an 18th century model.
This raccoon marionette is made of linden wood, leather, and the tail of a roadkill raccoon.
This crow puppet is carved of basswood, with prosthetics waste and umbrella parts to make up the moveable wings.
