Dalden The Huntsman


“Dalden The Huntsman” is fantasy creation, he is 60 cm tall, he has been lovingly carved by myself from the finest linden wood and preserved in bees wax. I love to paint my marionettes with oil paint as it allows the natural grain of the wood to shine through beautifully. His costume is made from pure silk recycled Indian sarees with beautiful jewel like colours. His head covering is from butter soft leather and he is decorated with a sword and trumpet made from metal possibly brass.
The pictures are taken at Dalden Tower a medieval fortified Manor house, not far from our English home. We imagine him being the hunter for this household hundreds of years ago. Not sure of the buildings age, but it was given to the Bowes family in 1375, it is in ruins, but still an historic listed building.
Dalden is Unique marionette, his price reflects he is Unique and won’t be copied, the large pieces of solid wood used for his construction and the deep carving of his hands and face.

Iroquois


The Unique Marionette ‘’Iroquois” is fantasy creation, he is 55 cm tall. He is named Iroquois in recognition of the Native American tribes who carved faces onto masks and even trees.

I love to paint my marionettes with oil paint as it allows the natural grain of the wood to shine through beautifully. His costume is made from butter soft leather and unusually recycled fur for his collar.

The pictures are taken at The Blast Beach Seaham that was used to dump coal waste from 1968 to the early 1990s, in 1992 Alien 3 was filmed there. Nature is fighting back and it is a wondrous place full of contrasts.

Schori


This Unique Marionette ,,Schori” is fantasy creation at 55 cm tall, he has been lovingly carved by myself from the finest linden wood and preserved in bees wax. I love to paint my marionettes with oil paint as it allows the natural grain of the wood to shine through beautifully. His costume is made from butter soft leather and he is decorated with a chain.

His character is wise man, who is in touch with the elements of the earth. To strengthen his connection to the Earths power, he is augmented with dark crystals. Does that mean he is evil or is he trying to understand the darker side of magic to protect the world? Time will tell.

He is never seen without his chain around his neck, another mystery because anyone can see, it isn’t gold, it looks like something he would buy from a peddler in the local market, the rumour it’s for control, but is it someone controlling him….?…

,,Schori” is Unique marionette, his price reflects he is Unique and won’t be copied, the large pieces of solid wood used for his construction and the deep carving of his hands and face.

I am really excited to share my Blue Boy (60 cm tall) 1/5 and Red Boy (60 cm) Limited Edition 2/5, they are hand carved and finished to the same high standard as all my marionettes, I use bees wax to preserve the wood and then I finish them with oil paint.

I have been really lucky to find a supplier of fantastic recycled silks in India, they have an unbelievable range of colours and patterns which have given my latest work a real boost. The colours are bright and vibrant and work with the oil paints to bring the marionettes alive. The rest is made up of soft leather in the usual way and decorated with real feathers. (The Peacock feathers may not be available in all colours.)

Red Boy was created to order and he will live in America with his brother Blue Boy. There will not be another in theses colours but maybe green, purple, yellow… claim your colour let you imagination run WILD.
