About "Water Dragon"

The shape and form of this piece of driftwood lent itself to a swimming dragon pushing itself off the 'outcroppings' as it swept by.
I was trying to acheive a feeling of motion within the water. The overall contours of the body, the wings being more like fins and the simplicity of the shoe polish colouring are all my representation of a creature at home within a marine environment.

About Jacques

Jacques Smit

I'm inspired by the joy of seeing clay take on a life of it's own, by putting shape, form and feeling into a thought or concept. I have worked in several mediums, but only clay seems to bring my imagination to life.

Dragons are favorite subject because as an imaginary creature, I have complete freedom in how they take shape. My sculpting career began in 1990 with the desire to express the perfect dragon. No matter what else I do, I always come back to my dragons.
Along the way I discovered an interest in the contours, flowing lines and forms that make up faces. These are most of my wall-mounted works, which I like to show as aspects of nature such as deserts or flowing water.

I am often inspired by the patterns and grains of driftwood and many of my works are tailor-made for a specific driftwood base.
Most of the ideas for my pieces come from tales of magic, fantasy and mythology.
