Anatomy Of A Puppet:
To create an intricate, lively puppet from a block of pine, yards of string and bits of metal, leather and cord requires a talent that few possess. Meredith Bixby has such a talent. He has crafted over 100 puppets which are characters in the eight puppet shows he's produced. Here the artist-craftsman compared the puppet he's making with a proposed sketch. Bixby started college as an engineering major.
