Susan Point’s monumental glass housepost, Where the Ocean Connects to the Sky, reveals the connection between all living creatures – both the physical and spiritual which ties into the core of existence.

The ‘thread of life’ represented by the ‘cedar rope’ in the centre lies at the heart of this design, linking the surrounding Killerwhales, Salmon, Eagles and Ravens. The ocean is illustrated by the Killerwhales which feed upon the Salmon. The Eagles and Ravens illustrate the sky.

Killerwhales and humans are believed to be closely related. They symbolize long life, and it is thought that great Chiefs transform into Killerwhales when deceased.  The Eagle is a symbol of power, and Eagle down represents peace and friendship. Its alter ego, the Raven, is considered the hero, the trickster, transformer and creator.  Salmon are a central part of life as a main sustenance of both humans and creatures.

Susan Point pays homage to First Nation mythology and ideology. This uniquely designed housepost illuminates how tradition can be re-interpreted into a modern day context, as can life lessons associated with stories and legends.  Point’s contemporized and beautifully designed work is a testament to her artistry and First Nation’s tradition and culture
