Return Journey (2009)
Return Journey is a tribute to the Alaskan Pacific coastal life and peoples featuring a traditional rendering of a salmon motif.

The landscape depicts a favorite family fishing spot in Prince William Sound known for its salmon run, where the ocean salmon head home in their epic up-river return journey.

The woods in the nose, buttsleeve (curly narrra) and grip (curly bubinga) were chosen for their color: the deep, rich tones of dried and smoked salmon. Though the landscape is based on a snapshot of the area, Tracy was thinking of the minimal style of antique maritime scrimshaw, so it is inked in a warm sepia color. The colors of the actual location come through in the point veneers and in the abalone and mother of pearl ring work.

Please refer to our available cues for more details.
