The Cincinnati Reds Opening Day is just over three weeks away, reminding me of these three bronze baseball sculptures I made to celebrate America’s past-time. The batter, pitcher, and fielder (“POW!”, “The Un-Wind-Up”, & “Run It Down”, respectively) are my stylized interpretations of the powerful grace of the action in baseball. The minimal detail makes us focus on the movement and balance, not only of the depicted players, but also of the bronzes as pure sculptural form. I had proposed giant versions of these sculptures—big enough for you to walk underneath their arms & legs as you walk to the games for the Reds’ stadium and I still want to do that somewhere deserving.
I have made them in signed & numbered editions of 12 each, and there are only 3 left of each. The current set is now at an exhibition at the Fitton Center for the Arts in Hamilton, Ohio, but will be available as of April 6. The prices are $1850 each, or get the set of three for $4500—they look great posed around each other, a very energetic feel.
