Azure Blue Guardian Water Dragon

My azure blue guardian water dragons are constructed from small extruded coils of clay with a overlaid “dragon skin” of textured clay. They are purely decorative. Some have a single coil in their bodies while other have a double coil.

My azure blue dragons are glazed primarily with a dry barium glaze which is coloured with cobalt carbonate. This glaze produces a lovely warm earthy toasting effect on the edges and where the glaze is thinner. Additional details such as gold or silver highlights and the immortal pearl of wisdom in the dragon’s mouth are glazed with metallic lustres.

Have a look at my Dragon Miscellany and Dragon Sketchbook posts to find out more about the ideas and inspirations behind my dragons.
