Baby Dragon is the opening piece in the Baby Animals collection, a version of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac created from a more naïve, tender-hearted, and endearing perspective. Worth underscoring in this interpretation of the only mythological animal in the Chinese zodiac is the sculptural and ornamental work, which recreates the morphology and scales of the dragon’s skin with high precision. White was chosen for the whole decoration, with the sole exception of the eyes which are painted a deep black color in order to heighten the expressiveness. Another interesting feature is that the piece alternates areas of glazed and matte scales, an effect achieved by eliminating the glaze with a small soft sponge. This application of a very gestural technique with tiny strokes means that each Baby Dragon creation has a special unique finish. In China, people born under the sign of the Dragon (1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024) are called dragon babies and are believed to be imaginative, kind, vital and energetic.
