Custom Awards & Trophies
I can design something special for your company or organization. I enjoy being part of the circle of appreciation.
This is an award I designed for WoodWorks Inc. They give it out during a national
award ceremony every year to recognize architects and engineers that have built
extroadinary builidings in many different categories. WoodWorks, Inc. has a cube in
their logo so this design was very appealing to them.
I make a lot of board gifts. Everything from the magnifying glass/paperweight to sculptures. Whatever your budget we can come up with something distinctive and enduring.
These are about 14″ tall with a 5″ x 5.5″ base. As with all of my sculptures there is a soft leather-like material covering the bottom of the base. These are $175 including the engraving. There is a $20 engraving set-up fee.
These symbolize the flame of freedom. Depending on size and a few other details they are in the $150 range including the engraving. I can make a turned circular base and have the text go around in a circle. I put a nice soft leather-like bottom on the base. The engraving set-up fee is $20.
This is another example. This one was for a cat lover who loved to garden. I learned that her favorite flower was Trillium and made it entirely out of wood. I turned a flower vase to put it in. Then I turned the common clay flower pot and perched the kitten on it. The cats are reaching for the flower. She actually loved to travel and had been all over the world. I cut out her favorite countries and attached them to three sides of the base. You can’t see those in this picture. As a cat lover myself you should have seen one of my first models. I had about 9 cats that increased in size it perfect increments going in a circle. Perhaps a future project?
This is a retirement gift I did recently. I was told there were five generations of pharmacists in the family. I knew there were probably far too many mortar and pestles in their gift collections! People come to me for gifts that will really make an impression.
After considerable thought this is what I came up with. Sparing you lots of details here are a few highlights. I decided the base could be like the tray they count pills on. I made the capsule and two “main” pills. I balanced it out with three small pills with the recipients name spelled out with one letter on each pill.
I like to hear about the person you are honoring. Let me think about some ideas on how to create a piece that will really surprise them and make them happy. Why do ordinary gifts when you can do extraordinary?
Perfect for awards, trophies and unique gifts of appreciation.
This piece was about 6- 1/4″ tall, wide, and deep. It had a beautiful Curly Maple base with a Cherry Sphere. I would engrave on the base or engrave on a piece of metal and add that. I add a nice piece of leather like material on the bottom of all sculptures. When you set it on a table it exudes quality. It’s a very different feeling than a wood piece with nothing or little silicone or felt patches.
Something like this would be in the $150-$175 range.
I admit! Sculptures are my favorite thing to make. These sculptures are very popular for awards that will be presented in front of an audience. I make each one a little different so it is difficult to say the exact height. I like to think of the curved wood wrapping around the earth as a protective shield. Each sphere is carefully made and then placed very deliberately to show it’s “best face”.

There are different ways to have your recipients name added to the piece. Available in three different sizes.

This is another idea for you. This piece had an amazing burl (rare and wonderful wood) sphere on an ebonized cone. I can ebonize parts of the awards or just the base. Then I would engrave on a piece of metal. I can use different colors of metal.
