Born in Campbell River in 1972, Erich Glendale is of the Kwakwaka’wakw Nation. Erich currently lives in Port Alberni, though he was born in Campbell River and his ancestry goes back to those from Knight Inlet. He spent part of his childhood in Alberta and Ontario, then moved to Nanaimo and began carving in the early 1990s. Yellow Cedar has always been his preference but he also works with Red Cedar wood.
Erich has become known for his various small to medium scale sculptures, including rattles, bowls, small totem poles and talking sticks. In 2006, he also began to study the art of jewelry carving, working with sterling silver and gold, under the guidance of Nuu-chah-nulth artist Gordon Dick.

Spoons and ladles were traditionally made from either cedar wood or the horn of a mountain sheep, and their handles were carved with family crest images. Historically, these exquisitely sculptured objects were primarily created by people in Northern Nations, and were highly sought after by other nations. During potlatches [festive gatherings], cedar ladles decorated with the hosting family’s crests were used to serve food, while the elaborately carved mountain sheep spoons were distributed as gifts among the many guests.
Today, spoon and ladle productions are based on these traditional objects and are meant to be both objects of function and display. In addition to traditional mediums such as cedar wood, goat or mountain sheep horn, many modern-day spoons and ladles are constructed of gold, silver and pewter.
Yellow Cedar wood
A ceremonial dish, also known as a feast dish or potlatch dish, was a treasured heirloom which families brought out for great feasts as a gesture of hospitality and welcoming. Presently, many ceremonial dishes are carved in miniature form, meant for collectors who appreciate the historic and symbolic value behind each artwork. This aspect of the art is considered to be a contemporary turn that northwest coast native art has taken throughout the years.
Garner began carving at the early age of nine and, by age fifteen, he was carving his first piece of argillite. After moving to Vancouver in 1987, he spent the next two years working with renowned Haida artist Bill Reid on his Lootaas canoe and alongside a host of accomplished carvers such as Alfred Collinson, Rufus Moody, Giitsxaa, Nelson Cross, and Ding (Melvin) Hutchingson. Moody works in various mediums including cedar, gold, argillite and paper – all exemplifying his exquisite attention to detail and extraordinary artistic skills.
