Richard Black: The Art of Cue

June 30, 2007 — August 26, 2007

Houston Center for Contemporary Craft is pleased to present Richard Black: The Art of Cue, a fantastic showcase of hand-crafted custom pool cues by Humble, Texas, artist Richard Black.

Drawing inspiration from sources as eclectic as Gauguin, Picasso, Fabergé eggs and Parker pens, Black has gone where few cue-makers have in terms of design. He incorporates exotic woods and materials such as rosewood, birdseye, snakewood, ebony, pink ivory wood, ivory inlay, mother of pearl, silver and ivory engravings to create some of the most remarkable pool cues you’ll ever see!
