Hot News: Quinney Price Reduction :)
I'm looking at getting enough orders to make one final batch at the old original price of $100 plus shipping. After that whenever the following batch gets made in the future, I'll have to raise the costs to cover materials etc. So happily, this price is the same as 2006.
If it's something you are interested in let me know within the next week as I'm trying to see if I have enough…

Hi All !
I have to make a ballerina puppet for a new show and whilst I am quietly confident about my design (Bruce Schwartz inspired) and have done loads of research (if I see another ballet dancer anytime soon , as magnificent and beautiful as they are , I am likely to seek out a tall building or cliff top and learn to fly!) are there any pitfalls or perils I should be aware of? or any advice that would help before I start the build.
My gut feeling is simplicity, weight…Continue

I am going to finish my Wild West Review. a rodeo style circus. I restarted Harry and have his hands , feet, and body to sculpt. I found two copies of Your Feets Too Big, for his music. I have all the designs for the tightrope. So things are look up for Harry!

News From The Chicagoland Guild
Chicago's puppetry world is spinning so fast it's hard to hang on, keeping up
somehow with all the events that have made for such a wild ride this season.
CPG's Facebook page remains the city's main news source for "what's going on,"
and for links to the many new performers and groups that are the mainstay of
this whirling small-venue bring-your-friends scene. As we look back on this
Winter/Spring season, here's a quick…

The puppeteer supplies "soul" and "heart" to a puppet with his charactarization & performance. It is the very quality I look for in good puppetry.
The puppet is indeed a prop or even more specific - a tool. It is created with a certain look & abitlity to achieve movement. Those two qualities, by themselves, don't mean much. A beautifully made puppet can still be manipulated with simple mechanical moves & complete a performance. Such a performance does little to capture or…Continue
For the last 5 months of 2011 I was busy performing a marionette of China Girl for the new Disney film of "OZ; The Great & Powerful" that is due in USA theaters March 2013.
With the help of special effects studio, K.N.B. Effects Group, I built 2 marionettes of the character. They were identical except for variations in stringing that allowed them to do different specialized movements. As I have found in several instances of marionettes made from the same patterns, they each had…Continue

I'm editing a video from weeks 3 and 4, but I've been blogging about the process as I try and build a new puppet each week of this year. The first couple were pretty straight up Project Puppet pattern ones, the third week was a Penguin loosely inspired by the project puppet patterns, and the fourth week was a newspaper bunraku puppet. This week I'm making a Wil Wheaton puppet to turn into a Fairy Godmother for a…Continue
