Over 40 dolls and marionettes graced the Children's Creative World Gallery at the Arts Academy in Easton, MD

The Bear in a Clown Suit (above left) was inspired by illustrations in vintage children's books.
It is an example of a "trick" marionette and
passes the ball from one hand to the other.

Things with Wings and Strings, displayed in the Academy Art Museum's Children's Creative World Gallery, showcased over twenty five dolls and twenty marionettes created by artisans Debra Hathaway and Eric Heath.  Seasoned participants in the Maryland Renaissance Festival located in Crownsville, Hathaway and Heath create their one-of-a-kind marionettes out of their home studio in Easton, Maryland.

All marionettes are jointed and sculpted, carved and painted by hand.
Each doll is fully clothed in its own outfit, also made by hand.
 Princesses, fairies, frogs, skeletons, knights, pigs, gargoyles,
and fairytale favorite Puss N' Boots transformed the
Children's Creative World Gallery into a fairytale land. 

The Goblin King, from the private collection of Debra Hathaway and Eric Heath

Sir Didimus we made for our own private collection.

The Goblin King was commissioned by the owner of a website devoted to the character Jareth in the motion picture Labyrinth.

Debra enjoyed recreating Sir Didimus, another
 character from Labyrinth.  He seems to come to life
 with his expressive face and moveable jaw.
