About the design:

I heard the words “Only the fireborn understand blue” on a television show many years ago and they resonated within a carefully hidden part of my psyche. These days, I live and work in an ecosystem (the tallgrass prairie of the Great Plains) that would have very different species of plants and animals without the effects of fire. So, fire and burning of the grassland are annual events in my life. Like many people who live and work around fire, I know that the blue color seen in the heart of flames is actually the hottest and most intense part of the fire, when most other people associate blue with the coolness of water. This dragon is the spirit of that knowledge and a tribute to the power and beauty of fire in nature.
