The Fire Wyrm

This puppet was created as part of The Flight of the Phoenix, staged at Northwestern University in the spring of 2021.

Internal Structure

Built from round reed over a cardboard armiture.


Fabric Parts

The fabric strips that formed the "flames" on the body were cut in color groupings.


Project Sketches

These rough sketches document the back and forth between design and construction


Finished Fire Wyrm

The end result was a multi-operator puppet with a detailed head and long fabric body, lit from within by long strands of led lights.
