Gwaai Edenshaw is a Haida carver, multi disciplinary artist and film maker. His ‘Regalia line’ of patinised copper and silver jewellery has subtly rendered Haida formline elements hand embossed into the precious metals.
“What I am playing at there is sort of an aesthetic that I really love – the remnants of things that are in museums, or totem poles and buildings that have weathered over time. I find that to be a beautiful aesthetic”. Gwaai Edenshaw.
This impressive Haida copper cuff is hand embossed with detailed traditional, Haida formline designs and finished with a unique patination. The asymmetric shape tapers from 3cm at the widest end to 2cm at the narrowest. This copper bracelet would best fit a male or large female wrist.
The Traditional homeland of the Haida Nation is a group of Islands off the Pacific Northwest coast of Canada, known as Haida Gwaii meaning “Islands of the Haida people”.
