The Goblin King by Debra Hathaway and Eric Heath

Dragon Wings LLC, located in Maryland, has produced some of the most beautiful marionettes I believe I have ever seen. All of them look like time-worn, thoroughly loved childhood playthings from a bygone era. As their site says they, "design, sculpt, paint, cast, carve, sew..." all of their creations.

Both Debra and Eric are married, are the proprieters of Dragon Wings and have teamed together to create these creative and artful objects of beauty. Eric, a Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College graduate, is also responsible for Syracuse University's "Orange" mascot! Additionally, Dragon Wings will reach a milestone next year, turning 20.

I decided to list this one since Labyrinth is one of Kevin's favourite childhood movies. This particular marionette was made custom by for a very cool lady.

They also do amazing commisions for marionettes of pet(s).

Behbeh!!! That goblin king marionette is so cool! Wow, they are so talented. I can't believe how much it resembles David Bowie. We will definitely have to get a marionette made by them someday :D Thank you for posting, hon.

I've never saw Labyrinth.. until today. Seems it's one of those movies people have made quotes from for years, that I never noticed.

I've been enlightened.
