Dragon Dance

#258 - 1994

Light Blue

1.9 dia. x 1.0 ht. inches

A dragonfly swarm dances swiftly over water in the evening time.  It is a scene that lives on in my memory.

This is another manju style netsuke, and has a deer antler closure. This little functional insert was one of the first times I used carving materials other than clay. The glow that emanated from the polished antler so intrigued me that within a year of this experience, I had left porcelain carving to begin carving wood and other materials.
