creates his dragon sculptures by welding small pieces of Stainless steel and
bronze which are seamlessly blended to create a wide range of tones and textures. Special techniques were developed to fuse the metals together
giving the dragons a rich palette
of subtly blended shades of gold and silver.
An expressive range of textures is used to create their
"hides" which are deeply polished, allowing the different coloured
metals to beautifully reflect the dragon's fire . The eyes are amethyst gem stones which
spectacularly come to life when they catch the light. Propane is used for the dragon's fire which is piped through her body to a discreet nozzle on the base of her tongue.
No two of
the dragons David makes are ever the same because of the way they are made; each is very much a
limited edition of one!
This dragon weighs 40kg and is 850mm tall
