Celtic Dragon

I have always been intrigued by Celtic Artwork, particularly the intricacy of the knot patterns and their meaning. I wanted to convey with this design the journey of life. I’m not sure if I believe in anything after life, but I am open to the concept of it, for me the importance is on the life we have here and now. For me this is what the endless knot work signifies: the journey of life.

Whilst the knot work conveys meanings, there is also a technical aspect of it too. I find it amazing how the path of two parallel lines can create such fantastic structures. I studied Celtic Art for a while at college and have always wanted to create my own design for ceramic art. 

I wanted to create my own Celtic dragon because like the knot work they too have mystical and spiritual origins.

In my design I wanted the challenge of making one structure flow into another. The central column merging into the dragon’s body was created for this purpose. For me this symbolised the merging of the spiritual and physical worlds.

One of the main challenges for me was the level of detail required for the tubing in the knot work. The effort it has taken to create these pieces has proved so worthwhile and I believe that the visual effect is both technically and visually outstanding.

Recommended retail price £1320 inc. VAT.

The large towers are 17” high by 6” wide at the base and 4” wide at the top (all measurements are approximate).
