It's the Year of the Dragon!
Nancy Skakel was commissioned to create this dragon as a thank you gift.
Nancy tells us, “The recipients host an annual American Indian flute festival, and are enamored of Oriental art.”
The dragon is about 7″ tall. He is holding a real piece of bamboo. Nancy used Corriedale core wool, merino cross batts, wire armature, silver wire claws, and a bamboo flute.
This is another of Nancy’s recent dragons.
“I used corriedale core over a wire frame and merino tops for color. He is about 10″ tall. I made this as a gift for a friend on his retirement from medical practice.”
“I had fun making details on the globe – mountain ranges and rivers on each of the continents.”
