The Fox and the Owl

In autumn 2009, I was asked by Blind Summit producer Helen Hodge to create a couple of puppets for Sidmouth Amateur Dramatic Society for their production of ‘Babes in the Wood.’

Bert the Owl and Ernie the Fox (named by S.A.D.S), were created slightly larger than life to be easier to operate and clearer to see on stage. Bert is made almost entirely of plastazote and fake fur… Erine is slightly more complicated using similar build techniques to Pacino the wolf.
