This is a special edition of The Hatrick. A ball that utalizes the recently discovered 'hat' shape as part of the construction. This version was made for the person that descovered the shape: David Smith. The colors of the panels are pulled from the news article in the NY Times that broke the story of the discovery.

I was asked by Mitre to make a special edition Mitre ball. It has the consturction of a classic Mitre ball, and it is constructed from recycled mitre balls throughout history. This ball was gifted to 'The Lost Lionesses' as part of a campaign to honor them for their unofficial world cup run.

The latest iteration of my years long quest to make a really nice Globe ball. There's still a few small issues which will be solved in a later version. I'm not done with this ball theme yet.

A work in progress shot showing the inside of the Badly Drawn Ball (red pen variation). A ball designed to look ilke it was drawn badly, with a red pen. This ball was very technical and was a bit of a nightmare to stitch together.

A (currently shelved) record setting number of panels. I hate everything about this ball. It's awful and cursed. I try to avoid it. One day it will be finished. I've visibily aged since I started working on this project. Never again!
