the mare’s progress

I’m working in the dining-room. Nice big table to lay things out on, and the window seat affords plenty of light. The above photograph of the Mari was taken as I noticed its reflection in a mirror, with the light behind showing to advantage the transparency I aimed for in the puppet. The ‘shroud’ is muslin, and I plan to leave it un-dyed.

Above: I like these materials so much, I’m thinking that I may well make another version of the first Mari puppet using them.

Above: I’ve made a tail in micro-thin opaque plastic that yields a very pleasing movement when flicked.
