Martin Stevens said "Style is not something you set out to get it is something you get when you set out".  These are the words that inspired Ronnie Burkett as a teenager to continue his pursuit of a unique voice with which to tell stories through puppetry.  He has spent the last few decades realizing this voice and I had the pleasure to speak with him last February about it.  In this 2 hour interview we discuss his early career and development, his approach to story-telling and his fastidious attention to the details of design.
