Iris and I started our collaboration based on our common interests in spirituality and magic. She told me about dragonology and the idea that every person has their own dragon, like a zodiac sign or a personal guide. While I made ceramic heads to act as pedestals for the dragon, Iris made a ceramic portrait of her own dragon. It holds a magical wand and explains a little dragon coming out of its egg how to train their human, which sits on the dragons shoulder.
