Monumental Football Sculpture

‘Art Trails’ News   •   October 20, 2016

 I haven’t been too active posting things for a while. This is why. I wake up and go to bed pondering this piece. Good chance I’ll be sculpting on this 11 man 1890s football team for another 10 months. It has to be as close to perfect as I can make it. 

It’s a commission for a football stadium in Ohio. 

If you find yourself in the Logan area, and would like to see it in person, please let me know.

I wanted to show an element of the piece I found fascinating. The hard rubber nose guards that many of the players would wear. back in the day. The inside of the nose guard had a extension sticking out that could be bitten between ones teeth.
