Hallo and welcome to my website. My name is Jan Růžička, I'm a puppeter and woodcarver. You can check my work, puppets, marionettes carved in a traditional way from linden wood, painted with oil or temper colors and impregnated with beeswax. Small and simple marionettes or sophisticated for professional actors. Puppetry has a very long tradition in Bohemia. For Austria-Hungary, drama was subject to many restrictions, while the overlooked puppet performances became a widely popular entertainment, where the the authorities didn’t pay so close attention. In 2016, Czech puppetry was included in the list of UNESCO's intangible cultural heritage.

You can also see backstage and theater scenes I have painted, examples of our puppet shows and other my carvings and artworks. If you would like to order a puppet or if you have any questions, please email me at marionetisti@centrum.cz or call +420773522518. Of course, it is possible to arrange for your special wishes such as puppets according to photography, painting backstage, resizing puppets, etc. Also visit the pages of my brother Martin or son Jakub www.marionetisti.cz

Thank you for your visit Jan R
