Pouring Maize    

A Zimbabwean Shona Sculpture by Tendai Chimpa, (W15" x H53" x D15") carved by hand from Lemon Opalstone or "Opalite" as it known by the locals. The stone sculptures produced by these artists display great individuality of form and content. Every piece is an original and is highly valued by astute investors. Newsweek says that "Shona Sculpture is perhaps the most important new art form to emerge from Africa this century". This sculpture represents two of the most important traditional roles that women in Africa fulfill - that of providing food and caring for their young. A very nice, unexpected, feature of this piece is the baby strapped to the women's back. What makes the sculpture really special is its two different finishes. One being the smooth polished area of deep green and the other being the the unpolished area showing the stone in its natural colour as it comes out of the ground. The Shona are the oldest tribe in Zimbabwe and are believed to be the legendary guardians of King Solomon's Mines. The Shona Stone carvers are known as the "People of the Mist". In Shona sculptures, the artist expresses the fundamental relationships between two guiding forces of Shona life, this being the visible physical world and the unseen spiritual world that exists in various cultures. The stone carvers believe that every rock contains a spirit essence that influences how the stone will be shaped and transformed during carving. Opalstone is famous for its milky white greens with lemon yellow streaks of colour throughout and smooth texture, is sourced from Chiweshe, three hours north-east of Harare.

Iridescent Magic    

This amazing glass bowl is from Sol Maya's "Sunrays" series, and is an original, one-of-a-kind work of art. Sol likes to take the fragility out of his work by using lots of glass which is evident in this deep bowl weighing 21 lbs. This mysterious, moody piece magically changes to an iridescent blue that morphs in and out of the sunlight. 22" x 23" x 7"deep

Artist Bio: Sol Maya, a Native American of Mayan ancestry, was studying ceramics, sculpting and print making at Santa Barbara City College, in California in 1980. Between classes he'd watch the glass blowers working the glass. The more he watched, the more he fell in love with this art form. The spontaneity of working with glass intrigued him. He started spending more time in the studio, until one day he tried his hand at it and he's never looked back. Sol eventually became responsible for the running of the glass studio at the college, a position he held for several years. Active in the local Santa Barbara art scene, Sol founded "Art for Life", an annual event involving as many as 250 local artists. Sol moved from Santa Barbara to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in 1992. He worked for several years with David New Small (who Sol has great respect for) at New Small & Sterling Studio Glass on Granville Island in Vancouver, B.C., before building his own studio, Solart Glass Studio, in West Vancouver in 2002.

Chi-Wara Headress(female)    

The "female" Chi-Wara headdress, representing the earth, always accompanies the male headdress during the harvest dances. The baby carried by the female symbolizes the next generation. The long horns stand for the desired growth of tall millet. The element of water is represented by the fiber costume attached to the headdress. When danced by a pair of men chosen as exemplary farmers, the headdresses symbolically combine those elements necessary for good agriculture: sun, water, and a solid rooting of the plant in the earth.

Cypress Canyon - Blue Water    

Custom framed and signed photograph (17"W x 23"H) on Fuji Supergloss paper by local photographer Anders Dennis Rank. This is exhibition quality, UV-resistant, archival paper that exhibits outstanding colour saturation and fine detail. This photo is of a local hidden treasure, one of the falls in Cypress Canyon in West Vancouver. The remarkable blue colour is entirely natural, unfiltered in the field, and un-tinkered with in the lab.

Artist Bio: Being born and raised in Vancouver, Anders Rank is passionate about nature and our connection to it. He believes that our humanity is choked if we lose it, or misuse it, or ignore it. And surrounded by cell phones and concrete, that's easy to do. Photography is one of his links to nature. His photos reflect its beauty, both obvious and hidden. He especially focuses on things that aren't immediately and patently beautiful - the ones we walk past, the ones we can't see for the dreck around them, the ones we've been taught to think are ugly, the ones we pave over. Some images are highly realistic, some completely abstract. Others meld the two. Frequently they are not what they seem. All images are “real”: no special effects are used.

Spirit Messenger 2004 - Naoko Takenouchi    

In some old cultures, birds were messengers from the spiritual realm. Glass making has become Naoko Takenouchi's spiritual messenger and navigator in her life. This hand blown clear glass sculpture with crane imagery measures 7" x 6.5" x 6.5"

Artist Bio: Naoko Takenouchi’s work poetically explores the issues of our presence, identity, and relationships in society. Since moving to Canada from Japan in 1993, her creative expression in glass has become a significant way of navigating her way on this journey, forging a bridge between her inner world and society. Recently, with the assistance of a Canadian Council “midcareer” grant, she completed a body of sculptural work that was exhibited at the Canadian Craft Museum in Vancouver. Naoko received her glass and design training at Tama Art University in Tokyo and also attended the New York Experimental Glass Workshop. She participated at Pilchuck as a scholarship student in 1993 and 1998. Her work was included in New Glass Review 16 and the 1995 International Exhibition of Glass Kanazawa. She has received many awards in Canada.
