The Gourd Dragon

Like any other gourd sculpture it started with an experiment. My first gourd dragons were much larger, and made of curved "wing" gourds. But their size was a problem...so I tried something smaller.

Using an heirloom breed "spinner" gourd, what I call a mini gourd, I created a round bellied baby dragon. When I made one, I made 8. That was the first set, and I loved them so much I kept making more!

All mini dragons are palm sized. They rarely stretch over 3 inches long and high.

I make custom mini dragons as well as colorful sets! I can create custom larger dragons upon request.
