by Florence in 2004
Fabrication time : 300 hours
Arms , Legs ,Hands , Feet :
the first marionette that Florence ever made .
This happened during a professional class given by Caerlynn in the
springtime of 2004 .
Discovering the treasures of all the techniques taught - moulding
, sculpturing ,papier-mache , metalwork and so on, Florence wanted
her puppet so perfect , that the planned time of fabrication in
the end was double .
An enormous work for the head and a very long period of research
to get this afro-look effect .The mouth had to be taken up a several
times because of a problem of demoulding and also on account of
an unsuccessful try at painting it .
That stiffed the expression and wasn't pleasant at all .
When at least the day came to put the puppet
on her strings we found out that she walked more like a duck than
a noble Dame and once again the whole of Caerlynn's science was
needed to finally obtain her noble way of moving .
The construction of an 18 string marionette
is a genuine kind of a delivery mixed up with all those strongest
black Fairy has come from far-off countries to meet with Lynda .
She carries the nobility , the pride and the wisdom of the nomad
tribes from the south .
For the moment she still keeps all of her mystery .
