I created the 'Bobby Ball' as a homage to the famous hair style of ex-England footballer Bobby Charlton.

The piece sits in the reception of the Umbro Headquarters and would give waiting guests a smile as they waited.
Bobby Charlton began to lose his hair in the early 1960s and for a while refused to go bald gracefully, sporting a style of stranded and isolated hairs. This style is known as ‘The Bobby Charlton Comb-Over’.
