Art From a Long Tradition

We carry fine art handmade by coastal First Nations artists including woodcarvings and jewellery. No pieces are mass produced. The majority of the works are created in the Nuu-chah-nulth style, all using traditional carving tools and techniques.

Available Artwork

Appreciation of art is often led by emotion and feeling. Contact us if one of our works of art speaks to you, or if you are inspired to commission a custom piece. Art currently in progress can be claimed with a deposit.
