Description

"The palace is often called the Tentpole of the Sky," Gurney himself expoains, "because it seems to hold up the fabric of the heavens. It was built on the highest mountain in the center of the island and commands a fine view of Dinotopia in all directions. It is crowned with a gigantic rose quartz gemstone - found intact in one of the many caves that cut through the mountains. It serves as a signal beacon to guide the Sky Gallery dirigibles on foggy nights."

James Gurney
To dream is one thing. To create that dream with single-minded artistic determination is another. James Gurney is that rare artist for whom childhood fantasy became an adult reality, with all his experiences and accomplishments contributing to the knowledge needed to make the dream come true. The concept is simplicity itself: what if dinosaurs evolved into the intellectual equals of man and remained alive on a single, mythical island? Not a utopia, but a Dinotopia, with a science and lifestyle far more Earth-friendly than our own. To create this world, Gurney needed knowledge…a lot of knowledge. He graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in anthropology, then studied further at the Pasadena Art Center College of Design. Following years of free-spirited travel and commercial artwork with fellow artist Thomas Kinkaide, Gurney continued his creative quest with more than seventy paintings for book covers, but really reveled in his illustrations of ancient worlds for National Geographic magazine. Finally, he was ready to realize his dream, and Dinotopia was created through a series of prints, posters and a book. More works of art and books have followed (Dinotopia: The World Beneath and more recently Dinotopia: First Flight), in addition to many other tie-in products. A made-for-network television epic is also planned. Gurney has remained on the forefront of dinosaur research, making his creatures scrupulously accurate in addition to being wise and ecologically correct.

It was a pleasure to deal with Thomas during the purchase of this amazing tea set for my birthday! He was obliging to take photos of the inside of the silver pieces, as from experience I know they can be very badly worn. The package has arrived in perfect condition and well wrapped enough to survive the apocalypse. Once I clean my gorgeous tea set I will post a photo so you can see how Glorious it is to restore a loving part of the past for every day use. Thanks Thom for all your help! (and hi to the fur babies)
