Custom TGM B-Ball Hoops for The Trailblazers Coach Terry Stotts
The Story Behind the Hoop: Celebrating 300th Wins for Coach Stotts with Custom B-Ball Hoops from our TGM Studioline
It was a fateful day when Bimma came into the showroom to discuss hosting an event, I knew our encounter was the catalyst for future collaborations and connections. Bimma is a Global Product Manager at Adidas, as well as founder of Claima Convos (an interview series featuring underrepresented entrepreneurs in PDX).

A few weeks after our initial introduction, Bimma had the insight to connect us with Todd Adams, the brand development manager for the Trailblazers. What an exciting connection! This was shortly after we had released our customizable TGM B-Ball Hoops.
We were made aware of the upcoming milestone victory for longtime standing successful Coach Stotts. His 300th Win with the Trailblazers.
January 18th we fabricated three Custom Basketball hoops for Terry Stotts, head coach, Neil Oshey, executive and manager for the team, and executive Harry Glickman.
We had the privilege of making these custom mini basketball hoops that now hang proudly in their respective offices.
See below for the art, renderings, and final product.
These hoops are done in black walnut, with a black powdercoated rim, and black net. Custom art work and engraving available.

COLLABORATION WITH ALLIED WORKS ARCHITECTURE
Our TGM workshop was recently commissioned to fabricated a piece of an architectural model for the cutting-edge design team over at Allied Works Architecture. We modeled the piece, then carefully crafted the piece first with our CNC machine, then by hand to create an exact replica that fit their needs. Click the image below for an article about their design + check out our portfolio for detailed images of the "before" piece we created in our shop.

SPENCER STALEY TORCHES HIS WORK
Yesterday, we caught Spencer adding his own personal touch to his later milled sculpture. He decided to go over the piece with a propane torch, adding another dimension to the color & form. Here are a few photos of him at work.
This is an ancient technique called "shou-sugi-ban". In Japan, this was used to naturally protect the cedar from insects, fire and moisture.
