Dragon Gate Designs


Here you will find one-of-a-kind custom tea trays and woodworks made by my talented husband Jesse James Hendricks. 


The very first tea tray was a collaboration of our friends Azalyne and Aurelius of Astral Chrysalis Designs, Jesse and myself. A&A had the vision and the laser engraver, Jesse had the wood working skills and I had the art to contribute. 

And so Dragon Gate Designs was born. 

In a roundabout way a Japanese legend inspired me to draw what I call the ‘metamorsafish”. It is a mythological story about a koi fish who swims upstream and, against all odds, eventually reaches Dragon Gate, where it transforms into its higher self ~ a dragon.

As Jesse has been too busy building our home and working on various and ongoing building projects and touring and working musically as a multi-instrumentalist and home recording engineer, he had to put this project on the back-burner even with the ongoing interest. There are only so many hours in the day... 

But it looks like he is coming back out of the gate ~ The Dragon Gate.
