I have an absolute fascination for wire-haired breeds. Schnauzers being ‘MY’ breed, Terriers follow the list of my favorite group; but it was during the last years in Buenos Aires when I got involved with some lovely Dachs’ from my friend; I had the chance to show a little wire mini puppy a couple of times and it was a lot of fun. I ended up adding the Dachshunds to my list of favorites.
Last month I started to work on a quick sketch which I took to clay afterwards. While researching and studying a bit in-depth about the breed standard and types I ended up with my second ever made clay Dachshund.
The glaze on this piece was also part of an experiment. I’m anyway pretty pleased with the results. I feel I’m now ready to start a new, more serious, project in the future 🙂
