by Webmaster

Inspired Bronze, Inc. (, designers and manufacturers of custom bronze awards, trophies and fine sculptural art, was selected to remake the Spike! Magazine Trophy for the Spike! Magazine Tournament presented by the Thunderbowl Blood Bowl League.

Inspired Bronze will model the original Spike! design in clay and cast in bronze. The unique bronze trophy will be presented to the winner of the Spike! Magazine Trophy at the Spike! Magazine Tournament’s closing ceremony, September 30, 2012 in Vancouver, Canada.  Each year a trophy is awarded to the coach with the highest coaching record achieved at the Spike! Magazine tournament.

“We enjoy working on unique projects and recreating the Spike! Magazine Trophy is ideal.  We are excited for the opportunity to recreate the original design and look forward to providing a high quality replica that the Spike! Trophy recipients will appreciate,” says Matt Ramieri, Inspired Bronze President and head artist.

“We chose Inspired Bronze because they were committed to this project. Even when we had to back out of the project due to lack of funds at the time, they understood and throughout made inquiries at later dates asking how things were and whether we were still interested. Their follow-up is phenomenal, and they were eager to remake the Spike!. We had been to two other custom trophy designers that forged in bronze, one local and one in the States, but neither displayed the same follow-up, professionalism or skills that Inspired Bronze possessed. Their commitment to remaking the trophy to the life sized bronze replica of the original has been exacting, which is what we wanted from the beginning and we were glad to find a company that was focused on doing the same and doing it right.” said Craig McAree, member, Thunderbowl Blood Bowl League.
