S97: Large Welded Metal Dragon Sculpture

"... stylish, elegant, and bespoke metalwork ..."

Offered for Sale

This dragon sculpture was made by David Hyde by carefully welding small pieces of steel together to create a range of different skin textures. The intense heat from the welding blackened the steel as the pieces were fused together. The metal was then selectively burnished creating brighter highlights whilst still leaving an overall dark tone.

His tail was made from polished bronze and stainless steel to act as a counterpoint to his darker body. Garnet gemstones were used for his eyes, giving them life and vitality.

The inherently "one-off" nature of the way he was made means he is completely unique and individual. He is a strictly limited edition of one!
