This piece responds to a myth that 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.
