Football Player Sculpture

Marcus and Mubashir, Age 12

  • Sculpture
  • Acrylic paint on clay with a wire structure
  • A4 portrait

We are both football enthusiasts and decided to base our project on football. We first decided to make a football pitch, but after numerous attempts, we decided to make a football player instead. Both of us came to a collective decision to use clay, with wire for internal support. We spent hours working on this sculpture and it took us weeks to make. The sculpture broke several times, but we finally managed to make a football player that could stand without support.
