This dragon candle holder started out as 1/2" square stock steel and came to life on the anvil under the hammer blows at a yellow/orange heat. Details were then added using hand held punches that I made (eye punch, nostril punch, etc...).

After the head is completed, it's back to the fire to heat and bend smooth curves, split, scroll, etc...
A ring is made to sit the thick glass candle holder and candle (both included).
note: candle is a standard and easy to find size.

Once assembled, I make sure everything is solid and stable.

The dragon is signed (hot punched) with my logo "Naz".


After all this forging comes a good clean up with the wire brush followed by a traditional blacksmith anti-corrosion treatment applied at a low heat.(This treatment contains beeswax and boiled linseed oil).

Made to last a few lifetimes.

The last picture shows the steps in making the dragon head, a lot of heats are needed between each step.

Total lenght is 13 ", total height is 9 1/2".

Note: (The one in the photos is the one that will be sent to you)

You may click here to go directly to the drgon section of my shop, where you will find different sizes, styles,utilities, some have more details than others, prices vary... Each dragon is hand forged one at a time, making each one unique. Have fun shopping :
