S102 Bronze and Stainless Steel Dragon Sculpture
This dragon sculpture was made by David
Hyde by welding small
pieces of bronze and stainless
steel together. David developed special welding techniques
to create the wide range of textures and tones seen throughout her skin.
The intense heat used to fuse and subtly blend the different metals together
created many new alloys with colours varying from bronze to silver to
gold, with many shades in between. This variety was emphasised by the
deep polish given
to the metals. Richly coloured garnet gemstones were used to bring life
and expression to her eyes.
The sculpture is 600mm high and weighs 25kg
