Northwest Coast Carvings

Featuring works in the style of the Northwest Coast teachings from Simon Dick James and Robert Barratt. Robert Barratt apprenticed under world famous carver Norman Tait and Lucinda Turner and passed some of his carving style, toolmanship and knowledge about the art to Shane in a carving club that Robert taught. Shane worked with Robert for over a year before meeting Simon and being they both shared a passion for wood carving, it wasn't long before they were carving together. Simon, a world famous carver, teacher, singer and dancer, taught Shane traditions of the old ways, shared stories and techniques of the art. Shane has worked with Simon for over a year and his intuitive sense of carving is now leading him to explore new avenues of his own cultural heritage. Carving Northwest Coast Art and being Celtic decent may be controversial to some, but to Shane it's a way of paying hommage to the First Nations people and the strength and meaning behind the art and the people.
