firebird ballerina

Designer-craftisan @ Folkmanis

I was thinking if I want to give or get a gift this X-mas what it would be! Among very few things I am eyeing this firebird. It seems this puppet ballerina has played some magical tricks on me!

From a humble beginning as a sidewalk vendor on Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, California; Judy Folkmanis and her husband Atis have created a puppet empire. Their realistic and heartwarming work see  here.
