Copp Creature Shop
We're Maddie and Justin Copp of Copp Creature Shop
Maddie is a published illustrator, sculpter and trained puppeteer, and Justin is a DIY robotcist, sculpter and amature puppeteer, radio personality, voice actor, and digital media maker.
Together we founded a puppetry and animatronics production studio, producing puppet shows on Youtube, and providing puppet, creature, prop, animatronic, and sculptural services to the greater new England area, and maybe someday the world!

Leapmetal by Cat Tweedie
My name is Cat Tweedie Ball. I make metal sculpture ranging from several inches to several feet. I use primarily re-purposed metals from bicycles and construction. I like to make the sculpture smile-evoking and serve some need or purpose for people who interact with them.
For example, I love koi and wanted to make a large metal fish to hang on the wall. We also have scarves and ties in our house that resist taming. I made a fish where each scale is a pocket for a beautifully colored and textured tie or scarf.

Art has been a large part of Rajiv Ramaiah's life since an early age. As a child and throughout his teenage years in Baltimore, Rajiv was classically trained in graphite and pastel. After enrolling at Brown University, his interest in two-dimensional mediums continued to flourish through charcoal and acrylic. Since graduating with a degree in Visual Arts, Rajiv has embraced two mediums: sculpture and the digital arts.
