Alexander Mergold:

Alex has been creating one-of-a-kind puppets and marionettes for over 30 years. He is not a puppeteer himself, but his creations are used the world over by puppeteers. His life-like marionettes have been featured in books, films and music videos. When not creating something from his imagination, he has the uncanny ability to look at a photograph and create a replica of anyone or anything. He works in a tiny room surrounded by floor to ceiling industrial shelving containing boxes filled with materials and hand-made carving tools.
