While I’m diligently working away at the “Rose Bowl” trophy in my studio, there has been an international soccer tournament going on RIGHT HERE in the USA. CONCACAF’s Gold Cup has been happening for the last couple weeks and the final is this weekend. This decides who from out area of the world goes to the Confederations Cup in 2017.
You might notice that their logo looks a little familiar. I have to say that I began my trophy before this competition ever started and the finished piece won’t look anything like this.
Of course, you probably don’t care about that, after all, this is a metalsmithing blog. But maybe you’re interested in the giant metal trophies that go to the winners of such tournaments?
Some of them are boring (the Euro Cup & the Copa America trophy to be specific), some are weird, and some seem a little gender biased to me.
