Hi

Maybe we can make a list of all puppet makers that you recommend with their websites. That would be helpful for new vents like me.

So far I have...

Dan Paynes is currently making one for me, and I love the extreme customs that he has done.

I suggest you go to Ventriloquist Central click on the Tribute to Ventriloquism and then you can scroll down for a complete listed of figure makers.

I just "won" a wonderful marionette off the "bay" from a J. Emory.

It is a clown skater (inspired by a Fred Cowan piece) with eyes that can blink or wink.

For those on puppethub.com he is a member there.

I looked in this thread before and got out, and I had to look again. I clicked on a link and saw a figure that interests me.
I recently bought an early Lovik figure on ebay because he was close to my first figure, but had no plans to gather any more figures unless I built them, hopefully, I will be able to maintain that position - although I have faltered by emailing for a price quote. On the plus side, I've noticed prices have increased dramatically the few years I had my venting on a backburner, so that will probably save me.
I need to get started on the basswood head I want to carve, that should keep me in check.

Here's some heads that I am currently building for myself.

The Santa character has been sold and the lady is my first vent figure that I made.
The toucan figure will be posted after the tv shoot is finished.

Actually I learned from Verna Finly and was a student of Phillip Huber who does marionettes.

Wow, those are nice, I don't think I even want to know how much those figures cost.
