The first Stickball set I ever saw belonged to Alf Jacques, who also happened to be the man who first taught me the craft of stick making. When I held the set in my hands, I knew that this craft was far more vast than I had previously known.
The path I take as a stick maker is bound to be different than those of my teachers Alf and Jack. I learn with my hands, and when I make something, and show it to the world it opens doors for me that allow for new knowledge and information I otherwise would not have had access to.
I make friends and have conversations that I never would have had. My path as a stick maker lies in learning all that I can, and making every type of stick that I am able to bend. These are the first edition of my Stickball sticks. Iíve chosen to start with a Choctaw style set, and as I meet other stick makers, my sticks will change and evolve.
