The Dachshund on the Move, June 2013, by AKC Judge Dan Harrison
"Dream Chaser” Wire is an animated study of the movement of a proud wire-coated dachshund. He is trotting as in a show ring, chasing the dream of being Best of Variety.
Robert Cole's drawings of the dachshund trot were primary references for my interpretation of the three-dimensional standard of a dachshund in motion. The "Dream Chasers" Series was made with the Dachshund Club of America in mind. The Miniature Society of Florida juried "Dream Chaser - Wire" into its 25th International Miniature Art Show - 2000.
Each "Dream Chaser" is mounted by hand to a handmade, two-ply bronze base. While these sculptures may appear strong, the strength is an illusion! The delicate mounting and base patina are fragile. Protect from scratches, handle with love and care, and gently lift by the base.
Each “Dream Chaser” Wire 1:6 Scale is made by hand, one at a time in the USA. Each is signed and numbered. Later casts include my mark, .
