While we have been carrying the work of Gitxsan artist Trevor Angus for many years, we have been working especially closely with him over the past year. From steam-bent boxes to hand-engraved silver jewellery, Trevor creates a wide variety of artwork that is always sleek in appearance. Hailing from Kispiox, in northern BC, Trevor trained under some of the top Gitxsan artists in the market. He learned design and woodcarving from Ken Mowatt and Vernon Stephens, and he also apprenticed under acclaimed jeweller Phil Janzé to learn the techniques of stone-setting and repoussé.

Trevor Angus Bentwood Box

Many of Trevor’s sculptures and panels employ cropping, the asymmetrical re-framing of conventional designs, which imbue his pieces with movement and a modern feel. New to the gallery is a stunning large red cedar bentwood box titled Wegyet’s Dream. This piece depicts Wegyet, a revered Gitksan Raven transformer figure, displayed in many forms across the surfaces of the bentwood box. Measuring 25 ½” x 16 ¼” x 16 ¼”, this impressive example of Trevor’s work is available for $9,000.00 CAD. We also have several beautifully carved wall panels and paddles from Trevor Angus ranging in price from $1,500.00 CAD to $6,000.00 CAD.
