From a preface written by John Shirley, appearing in "One balloon animals; the rubber jungle / Roger's rubber jungle" by Roger Siegel.
The art of twisting and sculpturing balloons probably began sometime around 1920 but did not become popular until the advent of the skinny balloons after World War II.
The balloon dog was one of the first balloon sculptures to be created. It is also one of the easiest. Balloon sculptures have changed in size and complexity over the years. You can find some amazing balloon sculptures online. Balloon clothing have become the rage in Japan, who often dabbles in the avant garde.
