Life Before Sculpting by Dawn Weimer Bronze Sculptor
Tom riding the black mare, Linda, while team roping with friend Roger in the arena at the Wellington, CO, 80 acre hay farm in mid 70's
Tom & I had the pleasure of living with and the enjoyment of some of the most wonderful Quarter horses.
Of course, we outlived them, and we miss them. We are certain we will have the pleasure of their company again in glory.
Thought you folks might enjoy seeing a little of our background before I took up an art career.
Tom steer wrestling at CSU Rodeo in the mid 60's.
Dawn exercising Linda in the mid 70's. She stood 16 hands and one tough cookie, just like her grand-daddy, Hard Twist. She would actually crow-hop going uphill. But she had the smoothest gaits any rider could wish for. But she did have a tendency to try to unload you from time to time. She was fun to ride.
Tom calf roping on Billie in competition at a rodeo in early 60's. This mare was only four years old when this photo was taken. We were partial to her as she was raised by Tom. Billie was exceptionally intelligent, willing, and eager. Dawn began Billie on barrels when she was eight years old. Never like to take a young horse to barrels....it messes with their minds too much.

Dawn Weimer "Touching the Spirit"
Contact Tom to inquire about or purchase any of her fine bronze sculpture creations. "Touching the Spirit" goes a long way in describing her fine work. Always in bronze, never inexpensive substitutes. We accept Checks, cash and wire transfer (call for instructions).
Dawn Weimer Studios offers only lost wax bronze sculpture cast with the utmost care and integrity at Art Castings of Colorado in Loveland, Colorado, ("Sculptureville,USA!"). As each different sculpture edition of Dawn's sells out, a letter is sent to every collector of that bronze piece stating that this particular edition/size is sold out... Enclosed with the letter is a small piece cut from my original mold which further verifies that this particular edition/size will not be produced again. Should you ever come across a sculpture you feel is suspicious of being a imitation of one of my pieces, please contact me so I can look into the matter of possible violation of copyright.
Virtually any bronze can (because of the NEW 3-D technology) NOW be made a larger Table-size or even larger lifesize and/or monumental... Look for announcements of NEW enlargements of several of Dawn's bronze sculptures soon! Inquiries for all these various sizes are welcome.
