Skylight Studios has designed and fabricated custom awards and gifts of recognition for schools, corporations, museums, and many other professional organizations. These small sculptures can be produced for a one-time event or annually, as we can make a single piece or an edition of hundreds. We offer a wide variety of materials for the finished work, and each piece can be personalized with an engraved plaque. Some of the projects below are miniatures of our own works. Others we re-sculpted in a reduced size or produced from a mold of the original. A few of the awards below are original designs.
Arnold “Red” Auerbach Miniature Relief
In addition to the plaque of the legendary Boston Celtics coach installed at North Station near the entryway of the TD Garden, we also created miniature plaques to serve as gifts for the Friends of Red Auerbach.
The Brown Palace Hotel Millennium Clock
Designed to reflect the Brown Palace Hotel griffin logo, the Millennium Clock was unveiled on New Year’s Eve, 1999. To mark the occasion, a limited edition of miniatures of the same design were made to be given to guests that night.
International Institute of New England Golden Door Award
The International Institute of New England welcomes immigrants and refugees to New England by aiding them in acclimating to American culture, finding places to live, and securing jobs. The annual Golden Door Award celebrates the achievements of an immigrant or refugee who has made an impact on other peoples’ lives.
Lawrence Teachers Monument Award
In addition to the sculpture we made for Lawrence High School in Lawrence, MA, we created reductions to serve as awards for teachers. The original sculpture was designed to show teachers’ commitment to students. It is in honor of the work and dedication of all teachers.
Massachusetts Fallen Firefighters Memorial Award
In addition to the memorial we made in 2007 located in Boston, we also created reductions of the sculpture to be gifted to committee members. The original monumental sculpture is on the grounds of the Massachusetts State House in Boston. The firefighters were designed in a circular composition and are in action and working as a team.
New England Patriots Ron Burton Community Service Award
The New England Patriots Charitable Foundation presents a player annually with the Ron Burton Community Service Award. Ron Burton, who played for the Boston Patriots in the 1960s, is depicted here with two children, symbolizing his work with underprivileged children.
Northeastern University Husky Awards
The former Cascieri di Biccari, Inc., named for Robert Shure’s two mentors, created a husky statue for Northeastern. Skylight Studios continues to make reproductions of it in all sizes as well as variations of it. Small reproductions are often used as awards by the school.
Ted Williams Tunnel Miniature Portrait Plaques
In addition to the bronze reliefs commemorating Ted Williams, a Boston baseball icon, at the entrances of the tunnel named after him, we also created miniature plaques as trophies and gifts.
Worcester Polytechnic Institute Proud Goat Trophy
In addition to the sculpture of the goat mascot we made in 2010 for the school in Worcester, MA, we also created reductions of the sculpture to serve as awards.
