This marionette will take 6 weeks to build and deliver.
This bizarre mutant hybrid marionette is 16" tall and made from poplar, maple, fabric, polymer clay and urethane. She is fully articulated with 10 strings. Her crab claw moves at the shoulder, bends at the elbow and can snap open and closed her pincer with rapid precision making a satisfying "clacking" sound. This puppet is Vegan! No animal products!
Her vacant, insane eyes do not convey a soul at piece. Driven mad by her mutilation and forever searching for affection and comfort, do not let her touch you because her unnatural strength crushes everything she tries to embrace.
This puppet is very mobile and fully articulated. In the hands of a skilled marionettist she is creepy and strange, serene and beautiful. Here is a video featuring (briefly) this puppet:
This puppet is handcrafted in Portland Oregon and built to last 100 years or more. If you are looking to have an heirloom marionette that will come alive in your hands, I would like to be the one to build it for you.
Please look through my other marionettes on flickr for more ideas on what I can build for you.
