Designed by acclaimed Native artist Corrine Hunt, who designed the 2010 Olympic medals, this listing is for a set of two platters. There is a large version which is 12″ round and a small version which is 8″ round. The design is titled’Sea to Sky’ and is composed of an eagle and whale. These platters are made through cold casting a recycled glass and resin composite, which makes them more durable than glass but more heat-resistant than resin. They are made in Canada and food safe but they cannot be cleaned in the dishwasher. They must be hand-cleaned. They have also been designed with a small hole on the back so they can be wall-mounted as decorative sculptures as well. Her uncle is engraver Norman Brotchie. Corrine has lived in the Vancouver area since 1975, graduating from high school and continuing her education at Simon Fraser University, where she majored in Anthropology. Norman Brotchie sparked her interest in creating art with his beautiful hand-engraved jewellery, and was instrumental in introducing her to Kwakwaka’wakw art. Corrine has been working as a jeweller since 1985. She sells her work to galleries throughout North America, and is collected around the world. In 2006, she designed the logo for the World Peace Forum, which was held in Vancouver. She also has large installations at Whistler’s Hilton Hotel, and the office for Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC). In 2009, Corrine co-created the medals for the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver with designer Omer Arbel. In 2019, she wrote the foreword to the landmark publication’Understanding Northwest Coast Indigenous Jewelry’ by author Alex Dawkins.
