Hand carved miniature sculptures by
"the Dragon Master" since 1977


       I have been known for years to many as - "the Dragon Master". I also answer to "Dragon" (History). I create these pieces in what is popularily termed "Fossilized Ivory". Acutally it is mineralized ivory as it has readily absorbed the coloring from it's host in which it has been intombed such as red clay or vivianite. Glacial fossil ivory - known as "wash", is found on beaches and normally retains it's natural creamy coloring.

       I use the fossil teeth and tusk of the Walrus, Seal & Whale teeth as well as Mammoth tusk. This legal ivory is hundreds to thousands of years old and comes from the Alaskan mainland, St Lawrence Island in the Bering Strait as well as Siberia, Canada & Greenland. "ALL" coloring on my carvings is "natural". I neither stain nor paint my work (except for scrimshaw where I use ink to fill in the design).

       I carve these pieces while retaining the shape of the original tooth. In some cases I leave portions of the natural textures. These are polished with a wax that will lose it's high sheen with wear. If worn next to the skin, the ivory will absorb your body oils over time and the colors will enhance.

NOTE July 2009 St Lawrence is no longer allowed to salvage fossil ivory, the elders realized they are selling their heritage but fossil's are still gathered on the Alaskan mainland as well as Russia/Siberia. Fossil ivory is getting very hard to come by and prices are climbing and you can no longer sell/trade or buy fossil ivory on eBay, they say it promotes the killing of elephants(?).
