Description of work

This is a football trophy to be presented to the "clubman of the year", for a team in Derbyshire. It is an example of how I can work with a customer on a design idea to produce something that meets with their approval, based on their initial thoughts, but is also makeable. Richard, who commissioned the trophy, sent me the drawing shown below, and with a few emails back and forwards we came up with this modified version, with which he was delighted.

The vase is about 12 inches high, hollowed out, made from spalted sycamore. It rests on a three-tiered sycamore base, about 7 inches in diameter. The rim is pyrographed with the dedication "clubman of the year", and the team badge, a fox, is pyrographed on the inside of the vase, which is cut away at the top at an angle of approximately 45 degrees. Annual winners are likely to be recorded on 15mm high rectangular metal engraving plaques.

The price within the range suggested will depend on size, the amount of pyrography required, and the type of timber used. As seen in the photo this would be £70.
