Puppets

[back to top]

Joe has designed body puppets, Bunraku-style manipulated figures, shadow puppets, humanettes (and simian-nettes!) for theatre, circus and cabaret shows, as well as big head puppets for large-scale outdoor performances.

These headdresses and top of the head masks were designed and built by Joe for various theater companies.

Wanting to get away from the old stock types, Joe has worked with his partner Minna Matilda to create commedia half masks that focus on strong, unique characters not tied to a particular time, place or gender.

Maskmaker, Puppet Designer, Set &

Animal half masks made for various theater companies and universities, for both performances and actor training.
