Recycled Glass Free Form Bowl Set. Namwayut Collection - We are all one.
The Namwayut Collection is the result of the collaborative efforts of Canadian aboriginal designer, Corrine Hunt, Komoyue and Tlingit heritage, and Canadian producer of fine gifts, Boma.
This is the name given to Corrine by her paternal grandmother, Abusa, in 1965.
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.
