Haida Way

Using motifs, colours, and flat linear elements customarily associated with Haida artwork, I designed a piece to depict that most contemporary and unfortunate invention known as the "flame."  If you've ever been innocently sitting at your computer monitor only to find yourself on the receiving end of a vitriolic email , then you will identify with this depiction. There is lots of symbolism here, which I decided to "hide away" for you, the viewer, to interpret for yourself.

Made from raw-edge machine-appliqued cotton.

  1. A clever interpretation of tradition, Mary....and I love the name! You've done a wonderful job of preserving the traditional imagery while delivering a contemporary message!
