Haida Gwaii



Marcel has acquired his training and experience from noted artists such as Robert Davidson, Dempsey Bob, Ron Russ, Henry Green, and Bill Reid. Marcel carves intricate jewellery pieces in silver and gold, sometimes combining argillite and different types of wood to produce unique pieces. A lot of his work is based on specific Haida legends and stories. Marcel has also pushed the boundaries of traditional forms and shapes to create a very modern/contemporary design element in his work. In the spring of 1999, Marcel exhibited with his father at the Museum of Man in New York. In 2008, Marcel was one of fourteen argillite carvers featured in Carol Sheehan’s 'Breathing Stone' book. He belongs to the Raven Clan.
