Book of Kells Dragon

  • Exhibition: It's all in the detail - 2023
  • Description of your entry: My take on a dragon illumination from the Book of Kells using copper 6mm wire to make the dragon outline and details. I wanted it to look old so instead of leaving the wires bright and polished, I finished with a layer of T232 silver flux to make them look imperfect with age.
