Peggy Fleming Trophy and Monumental Sculpture
Peggy Fleming Trophy
Peggy’s trophy for Artistic Skating depicts Peggy Fleming, the skater who changed her sport forever, and charmed the world. Peggy’s beauty and artistry run through her and all she does and touches. Close inspection of the trophy sculpture shows the sleek skating gesture encloses—space, my symbol for young skaters. The same young skaters who will step into this open space and fill Peggy’s dream of perfect artistry on ice . . . just like Peggy.
Peggy Fleming Monumental Sculpture
Watch Peggy Fleming skate and your breath stops. You see the fullest exquisite splendor of what skates and ice can be. The world stood breathless in 1968 and little girls began their thousands of hours practice with Peggy on their minds. I sculpted this tribute to my beautiful friend with two purposes: to reflect the beauty of Peggy’s skating lines and to show an available open space to be filled by those little girls one day.
