My most popular series (and arguably the cutest), are my miniature gourd dragons. But of course, you can't have baby dragons without their
much larger parents! I've always been fascinated by dragons. Growing up I drew them constantly. Books upon books are full of my dragon
drawings! My miniature dragons are made of a single spinner gourd, but the larger ones are made of many gourds put together like the
picture to the right. The pictures below are just a sampling of what I've made. You can see EVERY dragon I've ever created at the Gourd
Dragon Blog. You can also view my Online Store to buy a dragon of your very own!

Gourd Dragons
Realistic Gourd Dragons
These highly detailed dragons require a many
layered process to create. Not only do I have to
prepare the gourds, but they must be fitted and
assembled. Once the base is made, I use wire
to base the legs and wings, clay to fill in the
shape, and then tediously apply every single
scale by hand and one-by-one. Fabric is used
for the wings so they are life-like and durable.
