AGNIMAY the Fiery
This copper dragon started as a fun project. I had some copper triangle pieces left over from cutting circles and ovals for jewellery and trays. Some of these pieces I had used to practice on, air-chasing, hammering etc.
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!
