Tim Clarke is a puppet builder who worked for The Jim Henson Company during the 1980s. He was credited for creature design and fabrication supervision for The Mystics on The Dark Crystal and he built Uncle Traveling Matt for Fraggle Rock from Michael K. Frith's designs.

Clarke's first work with Henson was the fabrication of No'man and Melsoon for Iftah Ya Simsim at Kermit Love's studio in 1977.[1] He also sculpted designs for Dark Crystal action figures for Hasbro. A prototype for the Garthim figure is on display as part of Jim Henson's office at the Center for Puppetry Arts "Worlds of Puppetry" exhibit.[2] His other work in toy design includes the Sectaurs and Boglins toy lines.
