Junior Henderson, Kwakwaka’wakw artist and world-class chainsaw carver

“The Salmon is significant for our people: we believe the Salmon are a people who have chosen to sacrifice themselves to us as a food source, and that twins come to us from the Salmon People. My grandparents had two sets of twins, and when you’re a twin, you’re automatically born into the Salmon Dance that is danced by our people—my grandfather composed a song for it and my aunties used to perform the dance, we’re very proud of it. While working on this design that relates to the circle of life, I was thinking about my grandfather: I’m a third-generation carver, and all my life, I wanted to be just like my grandfather, who was a big inspiration to me in many different ways—drawing, carving, singing, dancing, all of that comes from him.”

Aida Alves, 3D Artist - Engraver

“Having access to the actual wood carving shaped my perspective and approach, because it allowed me to take a closer look at all the different heights, textures, shapes and carving cuts. After experimenting with brushes and maps in my 3D sculpting programs, and using close-up photographs as a reference, I settled on intricately carving out the base model I had created in my 3D software by hand—sort of how the artist would have shaped his original wood carving, except on a smaller scale and destined for a pure silver canvas.”
