New lucky Claw colour ways

We've just listed our brand new lucky claws in our web store. Short piled black luxury fur, with bright contrasting resin casted claws.

The light Princess- National Theatre, London

Can't quite believe how fast the last few months have flown by. With only a day away now til the first preview at the National, still plenty of small jobs to finish off on some truly fantastic puppets. I've had a great time working alongside some great characters and talented chaps. Puppet designs by Toby Olie, who is a true gent and Max Humphries, fantastic mechanical genius. 

I look forward to sharing the fun along the way at some point.

Pirate puppets

At he beginning of the year we agreed to a completely mental job, to make three bunraku puppets in 2 weeks! I won't lie, it was really hard work but we enjoyed it.

Into the woods- Puppet commission

Initial cow head sculpt for a puppet commission

Light Princess, National Theatre London

Since late July we've been wrapped on puppet work with the new show 'The Light Princess' at the national theatre. I've been sculptor and puppet specialist working alongside some great talents, puppet designs by Toby Olie and mechanics by Max Humphries. The light princess has been tipped to be the most eagerly awaited play this summer and I can't wait to share more with you over the next few months.
We've been away for a while but now our blogger account is up and running!
