While in Baja my wife and I watched Dorado chasing and intercepting flying fish. These beautiful flying fish that run down the back of the Dorado sculpture create a scene of movement and action. The coconut palm patterns on the bottom of the Dorado speak about the beauty of the surroundings and a nap on a hammock in the Baja sun.

Fly Ball Eagle; The American Sport
by Lance Marshall Boen
11′ 8″ | Leather & Vintage Baseball Gloves
$24,000

Fly Ball Eagle; The American Sport, is an eleven-foot, eight-inch sculpture created from vintage baseball gloves that I began collecting in graduate school, where I received a Masters in Fine Arts in 1997. This work is inspired by the nostalgia that comes from a well-worn and much loved glove. It seems every person can tell you about their first glove, quickly recalling the feel, the look, the smell, the game, and all of the Major League dreams along the way.

Each vintage glove is a beautiful sculpture in itself, holding its own story. Many of the gloves in this collection still retain a child’s name, hand-penned next to the pro’s stamped autograph. My goal in creating this sculpture was to display the entire collection while conveying the spirit of the game in a single work of art.

To me, the gloves, with their leather fingers, resembled bird feathers. When laid out next to each other the began to transform into great wings. These wings naturally belonged to the Bald Eagle. The head and body are sculpted from gloves and at the heart is a catcher’s mitt holding a baseball that I hand crafted.

The gloves represent Major League dreams; the Bald Eagle represents the American sport; The Eagle in flight, catching the fly ball, represents the heart of the game, and gives the sculpture its name: Fly Ball Eagle; The American Sport.

Cape Buffalo Impact
by Lance Marshall Boen

Cape Buffalo Impact is sculpted of dyed black leather objects intended for impact. Everything about this sculpture gives reference to impact and speaks of the Buffalo’s speed and power. The leather objects include a boxing speed bag, vintage baseball gloves, work boots, and holster belts which have been spun to create the forty-eight inch horns.

The textured leather objects are worked together so fluidly that they capture the essence of this bold creature. The eyes seem to demand the viewer’s attention as if to say, “Don’t turn your back on me.”
