Below are images so you can see how the puppet creature was built and what they are made from:

Parrot Puppet:

This handmade Parrot Puppet is ready to come to life in your hands.


This bird has got so much personality already, all he needs is a voice.



This Parrot Puppet is FOR SALE, please click here to visit the WEBSTORE for more details.


The fabric used on the head, wings and tail is made from leftover pieces of reclaimed fabric from poi ball manufacturing, the rest of the fabrics are remnants as well.

The entire puppet is foam.

Operators arm is inserted under wings and into head.

Wings bend manually at the "elbow"
Legs bend at hips and knees
Feet are flexible and can be formed around a perch/arm/finger/shoulder
Mouth opens/closes
Eyes are fixed (non-moveable)


I started making this in a workshop that I took with the puppet makers, the Frouds (of The Dark Crystal).

I didn't take photos of the beginning process in the workshop, however, you can find photos of the decorating of the puppet and later adding a body, wings, and legs in the photos on this page.

Kricket's unique puppets have been seen at the following locations:

Faerieworlds Festival, OR
Oregon Country Fair, OR
Swift Creek Mill Theater, VA
Emerge N See, OR
Belmont Street Fair, OR
Portland Juggling Festival & Show, OR
Shambala, Canada
Shpongle, OR
Nahko and Medicine for the People music video "Budding Trees"
and more!
Help Kricket get her Art seen and more Art made!

The large majority of the Art (creatures, puppets, and installations) that I make are made at my own personal expense.

Various times throughout the year I provide FREE (or donation based) entertainment at community events and street fairs;  bringing smiles, playtime, imagination, and inspiration to the masses of all ages, but it costs me money in order to do them, and often donations are no where near the cost of my expenses to be at the event.
