Marionette and Friends
by Elly Arvizu
For my first semester as a ceramists I was given the task to make 21 objects, either about something or in reference of a previous piece. I decided to make 21 individual marionettes dedicated to my friends/family that I have met at CIA, each head and outfit was chosen by that specific person; For the purpose of the recipient to receive their marionette as a gift of how much they mean to me.
Porcelain, kanthal wire, beading string, wooden dowels , 14” in length, individual body parts vary
