pulling strings


The world of puppets is a mysterious one. The hml team have had a weird week exploring this little understood but age old craft. There is some magical stuff out there, the stuff of dreams and nightmares.
We were most taken with the website of Cleveland based puppet maker Scott Radke. His marionettes have that offputting quality that makes you think when the lights are out they all have a party at your bedside. They are exquisitely crafted, jaw droppingly beautiful and just a wee bit disturbing too.

We were so impressed we wrote Scott a fan letter. He wishes he was here for the carnival and we do too! So instead we'll bring you to him through this mystical portal knows as handmadelife.
