In our artist's workshop, we craft highly individual, professional grade puppets appropriate for puppeteers, ventriloquists, theatre stages, advertising companies, movie productions, tv-shows – or simply for your private enjoyment. According to the wishes of our clients and our own ideas, we draw the first sketches and design the puppet. Afterwards, head, body and limbs are shaped out of foam material and are covered with fleece and other fabrics. The outfits of the figures are also individually designed, no matter if a Las-Vegas-suit for Elvis or a space-suit for an alien is needed. Special wishes like mechanisms for eye-movements are also no problem. Portrait figures of celebrities, puppets, large walk-acts, marionettes and glove puppets: Each figure is rich in detail when it leaves my studio to enter a stage somewhere around the world.
