The Traveling Tranquility Puppet Company presents "Springtime in Savannah" a series of one-of-a-kind paper mache puppets. Everyone's wearing their Sunday best as it's Bless the Animals day!
Each outfit is handmade from upcycled/repurposed textiles in bright and cheery colors and patterns.
These are stick puppets, approximately 18" tall and weighing around three pounds. Designed as art and display pieces, these are NOT appropriate for children.
This is a small-batch production. Each puppet is individually made and can't be replicated.
Each puppet is carefully shipped in pretty paper and wrapping.
While visiting Savannah for the first time I was instantly struck by a lightning-bolt of awe and infatuation; the city is noble and imposing in its architecture, the houses built close and rising tall, all facing the park blocks with screened in porches and traditional, thick gardens. The churches rise even taller, every denomination and creed and cross, all proudly displaying their invitations to worship within. I imagined it to be a Bless the Animals Sunday and how the children could parade them through the park blocks, goats, chickens, ducks and dogs.
I started making dolls and puppets when I was a young girl, piecing together found materials and using unconventional methods of adhesion. The household sewing machine was uncooperative for whatever reason so I hand-stitched everything for years. These puppets remind me of those days of cutting up castoff clothing and learning how to make sleeves and collars, pleats and fancy seams.
