Giant Dragons Made Out Of Driftwood By James Doran-Webb

Published 1 year ago

A wyvern is a four-limbed dragon with the first pair of legs extending into wings. That’s a distinction that driftwood artist James Doran-Webb likes to make when presenting his sculptures. The first wyvern he made required an expansion of the studio and a huge metal frame. It’s a huge wooden creature that’s perched on a trunk of a long-dead tree.

Another driftwood wyvern stands on a gazebo made from reclaimed steel and upcycled water bottles. It made an appearance in the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show 2015. The piece is called Wyvern’s Folly and weighs 4 tons!

James Doran Webb is based in the Philippines. He works with many local initiatives aimed at preserving the environment and replanting trees. Webb buys his sculpture material from local gatherers, aiding their villages. Aside from wyverns, Webb has also made many other (and smaller) sculptures of galloping horses, goats and other animals.

Writes like a mad dervish, rolls to dodge responsibility, might have bitten the Moon once.

Got wisdom to pour?
