21 Ways to View ZsuZsi

Earlier this year we completed a satin finish OOR for a customer in Edmonton, Alberta. This customer has a bulldog named ZsuZsi which has had its portrait painted 16 times by some very prominent Canadian artists She sent us photos of the dog’s head and asked if we would create a small inlay for the peghead. Because it is such a cute dog with lots of folds and wrinkles, we decided to do it. Our longtime designer and engraver, Patrick Pothier, created a drawing of the bulldog which nestles in the bottom of our logo. Although the inlay is small, it was one of his most challenging engravings because of the small size and the intricate detail. When not being played, ZsuZsi hangs in our customer’s art gallery.
