Part of the Ravens and Eagles: Haida Art series

Haida art is in the hands of a new generation who are carrying on the traditions. Like their weaving counterparts, young carvers in Haida Gwaii have their predecessors' impressive legacy to match. The New Masters features three leading carvers from the new generation, some of the last apprentices that worked with the late Haida Master Bill Reid. Tim Boyko and Garner Moody work out of the same carvers' shed in Skidegate, British Columbia, a structure originally built by one of their elders. They discuss the part they played in a recent project that saw the completion of six totem poles. Working alone, Clayton Gladstone carves on wood and precious metals. He shares his views about contemporary and traditional art.
