The Fire Wyrm
This puppet was created as part of The Flight of the Phoenix, staged at Northwestern University in the spring of 2021.
Built from round reed over a cardboard armiture.
The fabric strips that formed the "flames" on the body were cut in color groupings.
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.
