Carl Eller | Minneapolis, MN
Carl Eller has always had a unique way of expressing himself. Following retirement from professional football, he had brief stints in broadcast announcing and acting, appearing in small roles in several movies and TV series. Eller, however, found his true creative calling at the potter's wheel, becoming an accomplished ceramic artist. Eller created this original artwork specifically for the U.S. Bank Stadium Collection. The piece pays homage to the Land of 10,000 Lakes and draws inspiration from his many years of fishing and "summering on the lake.
