Dr. Chase has dedicated a large portion of his career to preserving the museum arts and pioneering new techniques, specializing in dioramas. Today, Chase Studio artists employ traditional and modern modeling and casting methods and materials to create ultra-realistic plants, animals, and fossil reproductions. A team of mural painters creates backgrounds with striking realism. The combination becomes a diorama that can transport museum guests to other worlds, prehistoric places, or to the natural environments of today’s world.
