STCGD will be auctioning these lovely Scottish Terrier Sculptures which wrere donated by Debbie Shaver and created by Barbara Fraile.
Barbara Fraile was born in 1987 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Her deep and ongoing story with dogs formally started in 1998 when she got her first Giant Schnauzer, Wendy. She has lived in Helsingor Denmark near the castle Kronbørg and was a part of the great art festival there. Today Barbara resides in Italy. Her sculpted dog pieces have been sold all over the world and are in much demand and admiration!
“I like to believe that there is some kind of magic in the work I do. I really feel that the clay wants to be turned into dogs. Many people have asked me how I do what I do. I put myself at the disposition of the moment and soon my desk is full of clay dogs! I spend weeks watching them and taking them to the end of the process, and then I get them in my hands and watch them looking at me. I didn’t choose to do this work, it has chosen me and I’m at its service.”
