Thought you might like this Scottie dog snow sculpture. We’ve had snow on the ground in south Wales since 17 December, and on Christmas day, a stroll out to the back garden revealed this accidental sculpture on the trellis. don’t think our Scottie dog Carlo was responsible, as it’s bit high for him! I am impressed that the snowscott has all its legs and a tail!
In the past few days, the Scottish Terrier and Dog News has stumbled across two interesting Scottie sculpture stories.
First off, we came across Chainsaw Chick, whose motto is “from logs to dogs” and who does really fun art which you can see on the left and below. Original as this sounds, she is not to be confused with the other Chainsaw Chick who does much cheesier work and no Scotties as far as we can tell. The Scottie News will, however, refrain from saying anymore about this particular Chainsaw Chick given that she wields a chainsaw and we don’t.
While we don’t know if the Chainsaw Chick currently has any Scottie Dog sculptures for sale, we do know via YouTube that John Abduljaami, renowned Oakland artist, who works with found wood and sculpts with axe, chisel and saw, currently has a Scottish Terrier up for sale. It’s not cheap at $750, but you’ll be in good company as the Oakland museum has two of the sculptor’s works in their permanent collection.
No, it’s not Cruella de Vil who’s after the dog fur but rather San Francisco artist Lauren Davies whose art project, The Breeders, “explores the world of pedigree dog breeding via drawings and scale models of assorted breeds of dogs.” Apparently local Scottish Terrier groomers can’t provide her with enough fur for her Scottie Dog sculpture, so she’s making an appeal to owners. Lauren will even pay for shipping which is something Cruella deVil absolutely never did. Contacts can be found in the top right-hand corner of the artist’s website.
In the mean time, you’ll just all have to admire the West Highland terrier or Westie above. (Hat tip: Dog Art Today)
