This commission to design and make Player of the Series trophies for the Inter-Provincial Cup ,and Inter-Provincial Trophy, and Inter-Provincial Championship, was part of Hanley Energy's sponsorship of the Series run by Cricket Ireland. The design using bronze, acrylic stainless steel and 3 species of native Irish hardwoods, Yew, Elm and Spanish Chestnut were chosen to show sustainability as a key force in this sponsorship. They have a stainless steel sphere as the centre-piece with a swirl of bronze to emphasise the spin on the ball, key to cricket. The Series has been running all summer with the final match taking place next week, more information can be found here.
