Sashiko: Hokusai Homage (2007)

Winner 2007 International Cue Collectors Show "Collectors Choice" Award

Above: Before starting to work the design on the cue, Tracy makes a full size scrimshaw "sketch" on a thin, flat ivory slab. The design is then redrawn and engraved on an ivory section of the cue at the top of the grip and again at the bottom of the grip.

Below: A sequence of photographs around one of the finished cue's tinted scrimshaw bands.

Above: The dot pattern in the Hawaiian koa grip area is inspired by a traditional Japanese quilting stitch pattern called "sashiko". The small dots are sterling silver while the large ones are sterling silver bordered mother of pearl.

Below: The butt cap is hand engraved with the cue's name.
