Baseball Bats Carvings

Peter Schyuff Hits a Home Run in the Art World

— January 25, 2010 — Lifestyle
They sure did not have Peter Schuyff baseball bats like these when I was playing little league baseball, and if they did, I’m sure the team would have been bankrupt by mid season after depleting the replacement baseball bat fund. But alas, these stylish pieces of sports garb aren’t hanging in some equipment shed for a pee wee league, they are on display in art galleries where they are awed and admired as they should be, rather than being thrown into the dugouts.

The Peter Schuyff baseball bats have enough intricate detail and design to leave you scratching your head for days wondering how they were made. Just don’t try to hit anything harder than a wiffel ball with them.
Trend Themes
1. Artistic Sporting Equipment - Bold creatives are inspired to turn humble sports equipment into pieces of artistic expression, potentially creating entirely new markets for products.
2. Extreme Sports Art - Radical sculptural creations made from everyday sporting equipment provide an innovative way to combine sports and art, with applications in advertising, interior design, and event planning.
3. Art as a Status Symbol - Particularly in an age of social media, high-end sports art can become a coveted asset for individuals seeking to differentiate and showcase their specific style and interests.
Industry Implications
1. Art Galleries - Galleries that highlight novel sports-themed artworks, particularly those that intersect with pop culture or high-design fields, can capture the imagination and attention of collectors and everyday art appreciators.
2. Sports Equipment Manufacturing - Companies in this space that are willing to experiment with unique design features and alternative materials can create intriguing new products with applications both on and off the field.
3. Luxury Goods - Designers and manufacturers of premium sports equipment that add artistic flair, novelty, or high quality materials to their products can attain premium pricing and a distinct market niche.
