Kings of Leon Celebrity Pro-Am

0.01

The design firm called Phear Creative commissioned us to create a trophy for an annual charity golf tournament associated with the Music City Food and Wine Festival. The shape was derived from the "divot tool" used by (respectful) golfers to repair ball marks on the green. The Kings of Leon hosted this celebrity pro-am tournament, and all proceeds were donated to several local charities. Displaying sponsor information was one of the requirements of this design, so we engineered a simple pivot for an internal rotating disc in the shape of a record. The record was engraved with various sponsors/donors, and it tied in some of the musical aspects of the weekend festival.

The 14" tall freestanding divot tool was hollow cast using rough textured pewter. It was then bronze plated and antiqued, highlighting both the texture as well as the various text elements modeled and cast into the piece itself. The record section was cast in satin pewter, and then bronze plated. The record section not only spins, but it is also capable of being removed and replaced each year with a new disc containing that year’s sponsor/donor information. Thus, each year, the client only has to recreate the small record element as opposed to the entire sculpture award – the divot is preserved each year.
