Arthur the Dragon

Meet Arthur my first Dragon!  My inspiration came after seeing a gargoyle peering down from an end gable of an old house. I really love gargoyles but I wanted to make something slightly more ‘elegant’ so decided on a dragon - if  dragon’s can be elegant!? After hours of hand sculpting and a bisque firing I used manganese oxide to pick out the detail but apart form that nothing else, keeping the clay as natural as possible to give a ‘stone like’ quality. (He measures about a foot long when viewed side on!)


  1. This dragon is amazing! Having him peer over the edge is really clever.

  2. It does look awesome! I was lucky enough to see him live! Where's the rest of his family?
