Kate Church puppetry

Lovely work inspired by Cirque du Soleil

An artist of delicacy and detail Kate's work mirrors the varied experiences of life in her offbeat quirky method of recognition. Details embroidered with movement and grace, her figures speak of curiosity, delight, tenderness and humor... expressions of some of the exquisitely charming characteristics of life. The pieces she builds somehow defy conventional interpretation. They are not dolls, nor are they formal sculptures. Kate refers to her work as "sculptural puppetry", combining the line and form of sculpture with the playful anima of puppetry.
