Gail Mackenzie

Master (and alas, former) marbler Gail Mackenzie was kind enough to visit the Tie Blog last week, and there I was without one of her ties on display! So here is one from the archives, a highly distinctive marbled pattern (that I don't know the name of, I can't find anything like it in Galen Berry's list of marbling examples; a modified fishtail, maybe?) in black and white and wonderful blues. Feast your eyes!

Saturday just purchased a; Gail Mackenzie, Hand Marbled Tie. The quality and craftsmanship are so beautiful, three people tried to buy it off of me as I am wearing it today. Is there a place that sells more of these ties? Thank you.

How nice to be remembered! I invented that pattern and darned if I can recall what I called it. I did two runs of hand made lines and then crossed it with a 2 inch pin width comb and left to right and then offset the comb by 1/4 quarter inch and did the same pass right to left. Never letting the 2 lines touch.
I only saved 3 ties from the 75,000 that I made. I see them on Ebay every so often.
