Kelly Kirkham makes beautiful, handcrafted papier mâché hand puppets.

If you like traditional, hand crafted puppets you’ll love the work of Kelly Kirkham’s Kirkham Puppets Run Rabbit Run. Kelly makes some of the most wonderful papier mâché hand puppets and marionettes I’ve ever seen; photos don’t really do them justice.

Kelly is also one of the many puppet builders from right across North America who will be featured on The Puppet Building Podcast, a new video series that will be debuting on PuppetBuilding.com sometime later this year. Here’s a short excerpt of the episode featuring Kelly (it was taped late last year):

6/8/12 Update: Kelly’s studio is now known as Run Rabbit Run and this post has been updated accordingly.
