This metal sculpture of a frisky juvenile dragon was made by
Hyde by carefully
pieces of steel together to
create its solid metal body. It was not cast and because of this is completely
unique. The sculpture weighs 10kg and is 900mm long.
David used many different welding processes to create a variety of
skin textures. Selected areas were carefully
provide a counterpoint to these textures. The
dragon's tail and claws were made by heating and
metal to shape using traditional
techniques. The steel was finished by burnishing with a wire brush and applying
a protective hard wax finish to enhance its metallic finish.
