Dragon Incense Burner 1 by 1stQueenOfHalloween Dragon Incense Burner 1 by 1stQueenOfHalloween
I've had this one done for 3 months but just couldn't get any good photos till today! Today was the perfect day for natural lighting. I love how the smoke looks too.

This little guy is a hatching dragon that is hallow for you to put cone incense inside. When it burns, the smoke comes through a hole I made in his throat, making him look like he breathes it.

He has a notch on the bottom of the egg that allows air to flow in so that the incense doesn't go out too soon. I am very proud with how well he came out, especially since this is (at the time) my second dragon with an open mouth. Later I did my gargoyle fountain (it's uploaded). This was kind of my practice for that.

The egg is wheel thrown and everything else is hand built. I used a special wash for the glaze of my dragon and the egg has special reflective crystals that are kind of rare to get.

Cone: 11
Fire: Reduction
Clay: Porcelain

This isn't an original idea, but my dragon is SO DON'T STEAL, COPY, REPRODUCE, OR REFERENCE (without my permission). EVERYTHING I MAKE IS COPYRIGHTED AND I WILL TAKE LEGAL ACTION.

I love the way this is made, the egg looks believably real and the smoke from the incense is a nice touch. It is overall appealing to me. Wonderful job.

Well to be fair it is quite common to have a dragon burn incense, and really they only difference it that each dragon is well different. xD

I want to see yours when you make it. :)

And thank you. I'm in the process of making another.

I actually changed my mind, I don't think I'll do a dragon one right away, but I'll still show you the one I make ^_^

I have one of those, except it's a five-headed dragon. Man, those things are awesome!

I got one when I was like 8 and it's half a dragon out of the egg. That is what inspired me to do them butit was obviously a mould, and it was only painted in acrylic. Heh but it still holds a place in my heart.

Five headed eh? Where did you get it?

LOL Well I am going to be make more for when I get my online store up and going. You know... I wonder if I could make a small fountain out of one of these...? Well now you have my brain cranking. xD

Anyways, thank you! I'm glad you like him.

ooh! A fountain would be really cool... Or you could use it for mosquito repellent and only use it outside? They have those smoking ones, don't they?

I would love to see these on sale!

I think I will mess around with the idea for both. I like them a lot. If you want to see my recent fountain, look in my gallery for my gargoyle fountain.

Sweet! I will tinker with some of these new ideas then! Thanks! 8D
