Copper Dragon – AGNIMAY
This copper dragon started as a fun project. I had some copper triangle pieces left over from cutting circles and ovals for jewellery and my very popular copper trinket trays. Some of these pieces I had used to practice on, air-chasing, hammering etc.
When I started working on ideas for a collaboration project with Artisan Felter Eve Marshall for our ESC Artists 2017 exhibition a Felt and Copper dragon was discussed. We started working on it... our it is still a work in progress and she will be exhibited but for the moment we don't have an ETA because it has been a very busy year for both Eve and me; and big dragons need a lot of time and TLC.
Anyway, I digress. Agnimay was crafted because the other dragon is still a work in progress and I had set my heart on having a dragon at the show. So it started as a fun project with copper bits. The wings were crafted by fold forming copper triangles. The face was air-chased from a copper piece in similar style to the Woof Pendant. A piece of thick copper wire acts as the stand and allows for some movement on the sculpture if you touch the dragon.
Agnimay means fiery in Hindi, my mother tongue. He is a rustic, funky dragon. and if he could speak and fly I think he would be great fun and take you off for great adventures!
