More Faeries by Nectarine More Faeries by Nectarine
This summer I was lucky enough to work with Blind Summit, an amazing puppet theater company. They make mostly Bunraku style puppets, but of all shapes and sizes. 'Faeries' was on at the Claw theater at the Royal Opera house and at the Egg in Bath.

These two were collaborative work under the expert supervision of Nick Barnes (one of blind summits founders). I worked mainly on carving/shaping/sculpting the limbs and bodies. while the very talented Paul Vincett ([link]) sculpted the skinny green one's head.

I'm still working with Blind Summit and I hope as time goes on I'll be trusted with more responsibilities. I love it there.

(PS: there doesn't seem to be a puppetry category?)

Really lovely!

A puppetry catergory would be cool. I love puppets, being a puppetmaker and player is one of my unfulfilled dreams, although I did make some Handpuppets quite a time ago.

So cool, I wonder. Would they be interested in taking me on for a couple of months?

I'm currently looking for work that will alow me to live elsewhere for a while and would really be interested in working in california.
