|Dimensions||11 x 10 x 10" (27.94 x 25.4 x 25.4cm)|
Corey Moraes was born in Seattle, Washington on April 14, 1970. He is a member of the Tsimshian Nation, Lax Kw’aLaams Band from Port Simpson, British Columbia, Canada. Currently, he resides in Vancouver.
Corey works in several media including wood, silver, gold and original paintings. He has apprenticed under Kwagiulth artist, Dwayne Simeon, who taught him the skills of goldsmithing.
In 1997 Corey designed and painted a thirty-one foot replica of a traditional canoe. The canoe was part of “Vision Quest”, a one thousand mile journey to raise awareness and funding for a recovery centre for addictions. It was organized by Tsimshian artist, Roy Henry Vickers and the R.C.M.P. It was a great honor for him to be a part of “Vision Quest” and to paddle the journey in the canoe he painted.
Presently, Corey is expressing himself in silver and gold jewelry, with an emphasis on design and depth. Art has always been prevalent in Corey’s life from a very young age. Being a mainly self-taught artist, Corey began drawing from his appreciation of Northwest Coast Native art.
Corey’s inspiration to make Northwest Coast Native art comes from such artists as Charles Edenshaw, Bill Reid and Robert Davidson. For the future he intends to learn totem pole and canoe carving in his effort to bring the art to his community and his people.

The drum is considered one of the main percussive instruments, along with the rattle, which was used in traditional Northwest Coast ceremonies and cultural events. Its beat provides the basis from which dances, songs and oral histories are performed during a Potlatch.
The Thunderbird is a supernatural, mythical creature that lives high in the mountains and feeds on Killerwhale. It’s been aptly named for the thunder that rolls off its wings and lightening comes from its eyes when it flies.
