This dragon sculpture was made by
Hyde by welding small pieces of metal together.
Her body was made from stainless
steel with various types of bronze being
used to make her fins, ribs, skin texture and other features. David
developed special welding techniques
to fuse the different metals together. Because of this,
the colour of the her skin varies between bronze, silver and gold with
plenty of subtle blending in between. The beauty, variety and blending
of these polished metals
is particularly noticeable in her neck, especially so when it reflects
the fire she breathes. Her eyes are garnet gemstones which spectacularly
bring them to life. Propane is used for her flames which is connected
to her from underneath and is piped through her body to her mouth.
No two of
the dragons David make are ever the same. This is strictly an extremely
limited edition of one!
