Imaginary Menagerie…Ceramic Baby Dragon


Ceramic Baby Dragon


With fearsome teeth and horn he/she  has not yet grown wings or able to breathe fire. Part of my Imaginary Menagerie series. Firstly I make a hollow clay ball. Then look for an animal, a body, a head or where a tail might be.  Then moving, pulling and pushing the ball into shape, finally a cheeky critter appears.

About the Author
I’ve pursued many creative routes over the years but it wasn’t until 2013 that my love of clay really took hold. My work is hand built using a variety of techniques from slab building to pinching and coil construction, with each piece taking on its own unique form. Having been a wild gardener for over 20 years I’m inspired by nature and the changing seasons and this really influences the body of my ceramics work. I also like to surprise and delight with more humorous pieces. I find the physicality of moulding clay and the unpredictability of firing and glazing so exciting. It is this excitement that entices me back in to my studio each day. For more information about me, or to request a commission please get in touch.
