For your consideration are two beautiful clay sculptures by sculptor Daze Mortensen - sold by Austin Productions.
They are part of a series of Sneaker Kids. These were created in 1987 and feature two African American kids. The
male sculpture is called Shortstop. He is wearing a baseball hat and a brown baseball mitt. The female sculpture
is called Pals. She is snugly holding her scotty dog. Both are wearing matching clothing in soft colors of blue and
yellow along with blue and white sneakers. These colors were prominent among Mortensen's Sneaker Kids series
and this series of multiple themed sneaker kids sculptures were very popular when introduced.
The Sneaker Kids series is retired. Pals and Shortstop are beautiful images of childhood, featuring things we love
both as kids and adults - sports/baseball and animals/dogs. They are also large, solid and heavy, each weighing 8.4 pounds. Both are around 12" tall and 7" wide (measurements are approximate). They are in excellent vintage condition
with some very minor areas of flaking/paint loss. I like to think of Pals and Shortstop as siblings, maybe even twins.
