Marionettes according to a picture

This type of custom marionette is probbly the most popular. It is very common that people use it as a gift for their beloved ones. The body, hands and legs are hand carved from linden wood and the head is sculptured from a special mix of materials. The face is carefully hand painted.

These marionettes are not made for professional playing but we can adjust it according to our customer’s requirement.


We’re also creating all wooden custom marionettes. The face could slightly differ from the original pattern but the result is always a masterpiece. The clothes are usually painted on the body but it is possible to have a hand sewn outfit as well.


Marionettes with a special functions

We also have an experience with a production of custom marionettes that need some special adjustments as a movable fingers, the ability of blowing smoke (The Bull) and many others. It is important to draw a technical sketches first and here comes the precise woodcarver’s art of craft.



Marionettes for street performances and theatres


Marionettes designated for a street performances are either made from a wood or a special mixture of durable light materials. The same procedure is being applied to the theatre marionettes. It is important the marionettes will be light weight and easy to operate. We suppose that the performer will be holding the puppet for a long period of time so his arms must not get tired. 


Each Marionette in this category has a special function or ability to make a movement. Movable mouth is an essential part of the puppet. Any extra ’skills’ must be discussed with the puppeteer and the technical department.


Marionettes for film and commercials 

We have a deep history of cooperating with advertising agencies and movie studios. We’re able to arrange complete production from a technical sketches up to the extremely fast output.  At your request we also provide a puppet actor/performer.


While creating a marionettes for animation, we supply a reserve parts, technical support and complete animation including postproduction.
