Dragon Egg


This piece began when Sam read that in some cultures sea urchins were revered as dragon eggs. As someone who loves sea dragons and urchins the resulting image needed exploring and a regal ‘yolk’ with a baby dragon embryo floating and growing inside a rough shell emerged. It is presented inside out so that the beauty of the dragon can be enjoyed.

The outer is made from red velvet hand stitched with a variety of embroidery threads. The shell inside is hessian  embellished with machine embroidery and press studs.

Approximate dimensions: 18 x 18 x 18 cm
