Miniature Realistic Gourd Dragons

My most popular series are my gourd dragons. I mainly make miniatures and hatchlings, but you can't have baby dragons without their much
larger parents! I've always been fascinated by dragons. Growing up I drew them constantly. My miniature dragons are made of a single
spinner gourd, but the larger ones are made of many gourds assembled, like the picture to the right.

The pictures below are just a sampling of what I've made and may not be available. Check my online stores to see what I have in
stock. Every sculpture is handmade and one-of-a-kind, so check often for updates!

Gourd Dragons
Realistic Gourd Dragons
These highly detailed dragons require a many
layered process to create. Not only do I have to
prepare the gourds, but they must be fitted and
assembled. Once the base is made, I use wire
to begin the legs and wings, add clay to fill in
the shape, and then tediously apply every
single scale by hand and one-by-one. Fabric is
used for the wings.
