    Recycled Glass

    Available in 12″ or 14″

    Plexi-glass display stand not included.

    Plate may be hung on the wall – specific hole in the back included for this purpose.

    The concept for this design is based upon the physical depiction of air meeting water – a droplet of water which creates a swirl as the air affects its surface. The whorl-shape created by this abstract notion has produced the forms of an Eagle, on the left side of the design, and a Killerwhale; it’s body elusively curving around the right side. Corrine has continued to play with the whirlpool concept by introducing echoing shapes and forms that reflect across the surface of the material and invite the viewer to explore the “water’s” surface.

  • Hecate Strait Scarf – State I

    Susan Point RCA

    CA$420.00

    100% Silk; Limited Edition of 100

    Exclusively available through Coastal Peoples Gallery

    “Hecate Strait is a wide but shallow strait between Haida Gwaii (formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands) and the mainland of British Columbia.  Hecate Strait, because it is so shallow, is especially susceptible to violent storms and weather; therefore, has always been revered by the Northwest Coast First Nations Peoples.

    The shallow waters make it an abundant place for marine life, especially for spotting Orcas and Humpback Whales breaching.

    In this scarf design, I’ve illustrated the turbulent waters, abundance of Orcas, and Salmon.

    Orcas are great guardians of the ocean, with Seals as slaves and Dolphins as warriors.  Orcas are closely related to humans; I was told many legends as a child of the whale people and their villages beneath the sea.

    Salmon are a symbol of abundance, wealth and prosperity because Salmon are the primary food source for the people of the Northwest Coast.  It is also symbolic of dependability and renewal representing the provider of life.  Salmon in pairs are good luck.”

  • Journey of Hope – Red

    CA$300.00

    Serigraph, Edition of 200

    2011

    Unframed

    (For inquiries on custom framing, please contact the gallery)

    Also available in Blue

    Joe Wilson has created this limited-edition print series illustrating the traditional Coast Salish whorl in which both the male and female Killerwhale are represented in balance and harmony with one another.

    The ‘Journey of Hope’ was designed specifically for the survivors of the tsunami in Japan in 2011 to pay tribute to their survival instincts as well as their future hopes and dreams.

    The Killerwhale is an important crest symbol, associated with power, strength, dignity and communication.

    The Killerwhale is thought to be the reincarnation of great chiefs so they are the majestic protectors of mankind. Many believed that those lost at sea were carried away by the Orca to their villages deep within the ocean and they would be guided to a new life and a new beginning.

    Killerwhale Clans live in Killerwhale Villages deep within the ocean; when at home they remove their skins and live as large humans. Mating once for life and thought to be the reincarnation of great chiefs, these majestic animals are the protectors of mankind. While known to capsize canoes and carry the inhabitants to their Killerwhale Village, they are also reputed to act as guides to humans caught within storms.

  • Totem Pole Carving: Bringing a Pole to Life [Second Edition]

    Vickie Jensen

    CA$45.00

    In 1985, photographer and writer Vickie Jensen spent three months with Nisga’a artist Norman Tait and his crew of young carvers as they transformed a raw cedar log into a forty-two-foot totem pole for the BC Native Education Centre. Having spent years recovering the traditional knowledge that informed his carving, Tait taught his crew to make their own tools, carve, and design regalia, and together they practiced traditional stories and songs for the pole-raising ceremony.

    Totem Pole Carving shares two equally rich stories: the step-by-step work of carving and the triumph of Tait teaching his crew the skills and traditions necessary to create a massive cultural artifact. Jensen captures the atmosphere of the carving shed — the conversations and problem-solving, the smell of fresh cedar chips, the adzes and chainsaws, the blistered hands, the tension-relieving humor, the ever-present awareness of tradition, and the joy of creation. Generously illustrated with more than 130 striking photographs, and originally published as Where the People Gather, this second edition features a new preface from Jensen and an updated, lifetime-spanning survey of Tait’s  major works.

    In a prequel to the award-winning Red: A Haida Manga, acclaimed artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas blends Asian manhwa/manga with the Haida artistic and oral tradition in another stunning hand-painted volume.

    In a small near-future community perched between the ocean and the northern temperate rainforest, a series of disasters is taking a heavy toll. It is early fall and a fuel spill has contaminated the marine foods the village was preparing to harvest. As food supplies dwindle, a small group decides to make a late season expedition to search for sealions. Surprised by a ferocious storm, they abandon one man, Carpe, on an isolated rock at sea. After ten days they are finally bale to return, but he has vanished. The story follows Carpe’s encounters with the Lord of the Rock, who demands retribution for Carpe’s role in the hunt, and Carpe’s fate in the half-life between human and animal, life and death.

  • Odyssey (Silver)

    Corey Moraes

    CA$200.00

    Serigraph, Edition of 55

    2021

    Unframed

    (For inquiries on Custom Framing, please contact the gallery)

    Corey Moraes’ first full edition of serigraphs – a form line skull design available in silver or gold: “Odyssey” explores the notion of life journeys. Though each path is different for all, our experiences share similarities when viewed through a human lens – deep down we are all the same. Cultures and belief systems are merely window dressing – the outermost of many layers that cover our bones.

    Homer’s epic poem “The Odyssey” tells of the long, arduous path for Odysseus, and for us, yet we all long for, and desire a greater calling – a higher purpose. “As we navigate our journey”, Moraes says, “our chosen destination, our life experiences (both good and bad), determine our identity”.

    “How do we interpret our reflection? What do we see?”, asks Corey. “Is it reality, or merely what we want to see?” The layers covering that which is the same in all of us; our bones; our foundation.

  • The Way Home: David Neel

    David Neel

    CA$32.95

    David Neel was an infant when his father, a traditional Kwakiutl artist, returned to the ancestors, triggering a series of events that would separate David from his homeland and its rich cultural traditions for twenty-five years. When he saw a potlatch mask carved by his great-great-grandfather in a museum in Fort Worth, Texas, the encounter inspired the young photographer to rekindle a childhood dream to follow in the footsteps of his father.

    Drawing on memories, legends, and his own art and portrait photography, David Neel recounts his struggle to reconnect with his culture after decades of separation and a childhood marred by trauma and abuse.  He returned to the Pacific Coast in 1987, where he apprenticed with master carvers from his father’s village. The art of his ancestors and the teaching of the people he met helped to make up for the last years and fueled his creativity.  His career as a multi-media artist also gave him the opportunity to meet and photograph leading artists, knowledgeable elders, and prominent people from around the world.  In time he was a recognized artists, with his artwork presented in more than forty solo and sixty group exhibitions.

    The Way Home is an uplifting tale that affirms the healing power of returning home.  It is also a testament to the strength of the human spirit to overcome great obstacles, and to the power and endurance of Indigenous culture and art.
