Eagle Orca Round Recycled Glass Platter by artist Corrine Hunt.
Where Air Meets Water: The Eagle and the Orca, the concept for this panel is based upon the physical depiction of air meeting water, a drop of water that creates a swirl as the air affects its surface. The whorl shape created by this abstract notion has produced the form of an Eagle on the upper left side of the panel and an Orca, its body elusively curving around the right side of the panel. Corrine has continued to play with the whirlpool concept by introducing echoing shapes and forms that reflect across the panel's surface and invite the viewer to explore the "waters" surface.
Born in Alert Bay, British Columbia, in 1959, Corrine has been creating contemporary art that reflects the themes and traditions of her First Nations Komoyue and Tlingit heritage since 1985.
Corrine's works include engraved gold and silver jewelry and accessories, custom furnishings in carved stainless steel and reclaimed wood, modern totem poles and other sculptural installations.
A member of the Raven Gwa'wina clan from Ts'akis, a Komoyue village on Vancouver Island, Corrine's rich family history includes internationally renowned First Nations artists Henry, Richard, and Tony Hunt of whom have influenced her art. Uncle Norman Brotchie was also an early teacher and mentor. Corrine has mentored First Nations and other artists and continues to be a strong and vocal supporter of the arts in British Columbia.
