ALISON AND THE RUSSIAN PUPPETS

Ceramicist Alison Shanks became fascinated by dolls and puppets in her 2nd year at Bath Spa University, and used her Gane Scholarship to visit the famous Obraztsov Puppet Theatre in Moscow. She fitted in a visit to the Little Theatre in St Petersburg and several museums, and subsequent work focussed on making heads influenced by her travels.
