Twentieth Anniversary

FEATURED PIECE

Frozen Moon Pendant

This pendant was originally created in 1997 as part of my first ‘Arctic Landscapes’ show in Iqaluit. After 3 years of teaching full time I had decided that it was time to start my own business and I saw the show as an opportunity to express to my students and the community my appreciation for what had been shared with me. 

I have chosen this piece to launch this 20th anniversary series as it has endured as one of my most popular, classic pieces and always brings me back to that wonderful time.

The white marble for this series was chosen to represent winter ice and snow.

The texture of the crescent moons was made by taking an impression directly from a piece of Arctic granite.

Artist Statement

Arctic Landscapes “It is a common belief that much of the Arctic is a desolate place. In truth it is as rich and varied as the land in the South but often little grows more then 6” high. These pieces, using stone from Canada’s Arctic, represent my attempt to capture the quiet strength and detail of the Northern landscape.

I found working with the natural contours and rough surfaces of the stone to be much more rewarding then trying to force it into conventional shapes. I found that the colours of the seasons were very often reflected in the rock itself. Iron deposits in granite produce a colour just like September hills in the distance and rough white marble is wind packed snow.”  1998
