HIGHLIGHTS OF MY TRIP TO THE WEST COAST

I just returned from one of my frequent trips to Vancouver and every time I visit there I find wonderful new examples of cedar used in different art forms.

Geoff Ross is inspired by Coastal First Nations art and creates  wall panels that infuse representations of ancient designs with stained and chiselled cedar, copper and aluminum. The details are subtle but stunning.

" As a Caucasian artist inspired by First Nation's art and contemporary design, my goal is to present abstract images asking the viewer what they symbolize. Hopefully, every individual will see something different." Geoff Ross

Sticks and Stones is an artisan company based in Squamish BC. They design and create furniture and millwork from concrete and wood using salvaged materials. Their designs are sleek, contemporary and practical. This grouping is from the Social Series....takes sitting on a log by the fire to a whole new level!

The gravity defying Calvin table from Sticks and Stones is a beautiful study in mixed materials. I love the placement of the knots on the edge of the table.
