Round Recycled Glass Platter featuring an eagle and orca design by Kwakiutl & Tlingit artist Corrine Hunt.
The artist Corrine Hunt about her design:
Corinne describes her design: “Where Air Meets Water: The Eagle and Orca" – The concept for this panel is based upon the physical depiction of air meeting water; a drop of water which creates a swirl as the air affects its surface. The whorl-shape created by this abstract notion has produced the form of an Eagle, on the upper left side of the panel and an Orca it’s body elusively curving around the right side of the panel.”
Corrine has continued to play with the whirlpool concept by introducing echoing shapes and forms that reflect across the surface of the panel and invite the viewer to explore the “waters” surface.
Corrine Hunt was born in Alert Bay British Columbia in 1959. She has been producing contemporary art that reflects the themes and traditions of her First Nations Kwakiutl and Tlingit heritage for more than 22 years. “I want to show how both the First Nations people and the art have evolved”, she explains. Corrine has mentored First Nations and other artists and continues to be a strong and vocal supporter of the arts in British Columbia.
