Wonderful Puppets and Marionettes
At the European Woodworking Show I saw the work of Lenka, she is young and very talented.
She makes marionettes and glove puppets with wonderfully carved faces and hands. I couldn't resist and ordered this happy clown.
The clothing was equally well made.
What I really admire is the way the carving is left straight from the tool with no sanding, quick skilful and confident. If you want to see more of her work http://www.praguemarionette.com/ Have a look right at the bottom of the gallery page at 'Witch' my favourite.
