Artist of the Week- Clayton Gladstone

Clayton Gladstone (Gaa Alaa)

Clayton Gladstone is based out of Skidegate on Haida Gwaii, and is a member of the Tsaahl Eagle clan. His grandfather was Haida artist Charles Gladstone. Clayton has been carving since 1977, he spent his early years with many teachers most notably Bill Reid. Claytons preferred mediums are precious metals, wood, leather, paint and textiles. His style emulates the old classical Skidegate Haida masters with his own design. Clayton feels the supernaturals left an awesome legacy and they are there to show us the way.
