I wasn’t feeling particularly inspired today – didn’t know what to sculpt. So I decided to make a little dragon for with my fairy houses that are going on Etsy. Once I began, I really got into it. It’s interesting how the very first steps let me know what the clay wants to be.
Well, I knew I wanted a dragon but hadn’t thought about the pose or details. That lump of clay, though, somehow knew that he would be standing on his two hind legs. That’s what the clay suggested once I began to shape it.
He looks like a pretty friendly dragon – kind of like he’s begging for a cookie!
This little guy is just under 3″ tall to the tip of his horns. I think I’ll call him Bernard.
