A Brief History

Dragon Bones is the Creation of ex-Enchantica sculptor James Brierley. When James left RD/HSC in November 1999 he decided to create a Fantasy range of his own but he wanted to do something different and since there were plenty of '3D' Dragons he decided to do some fossilised Dragons.

So in 2000 the first few pieces were released and they were very popular, later realeases have even better detail with the 'Fossil' having a deeper 3D feel while still remaining 2D pieces.

James work's with the piece through out it's production, first he sculpts the piece then he make a master from the wax sculpture himself and from the master he makes the first test piece which he then paints how he want's it and only when he is happy with the end result does he let the piece go into full production that way he has full control from beginning to end.

James managed to get Enchantica creator Andrew Bill (also the creator of many ranges released by thedragonsite.com - Verbum Magus, Bookwyrms & Seven Sins) to sculpt a couple of pieces.

After a lot of inactivity with the range, it was agreed that the UK owner of thedragonsite.com should take Dragonbones under his wing under the dragonsites UK parent companies name "Fantasy Gifts Limited", a move that I was very happy to see (though I would have prefered it to be part of the dragonsite range). So in February 2007 the range got a new lease of life. hopefully we may get to see a few new pieces released sculpted by James and Andrew.
