"Dragon Dance"
#258 - 1994
Light Blue
1.9 D x 1.0 H inches

A dragonfly swarm dances swiftly over water in the evening time.  It is a scene that lives on in my memory.

This is another manju style netsuke, and has a deer antler closure. This little functional insert was one of the first times I used carving materials other than clay. The glow that emanated from the polished antler so intrigued me that within a year of this experience, I had left porcelain carving to begin carving wood and other materials. 

(Dragon Dance appeared in Ornament: “Janel Jacobson. Stirring The Dawn”, Carolyn L.E. Benesh, Vol. 20, No. 3  (Spring 1997) Twentieth Anniversary Issue, p. 42-47, cover photo and feature story)
