Recently, while living in America, I have been investigating the social sporting rituals of various cultures, specifically comparing that of America and Australia. Both cultures have an obsession with sports bordering on fetishistic. My father once broke a low-hanging light, while cheering for an Essendon victory goal.

I made these fetish objects which are ceramic and shiny, focussing on the generalised iconic nature of the sports ball, and the nature of the ball as a power object.
