Live Edge Bentwood BowlPeter Wayne Gong (Squamish)
"Prior to contact with Europeans and the introduction of metal tools, Northwest Coast artisans developed an ingenious woodworking technique, which involved grooving, steaming and bending a single wooden plank to form the sides of the box. Three corners of the box are bent and the fourth is pegged...and the bottom is added. " (Shearar 2000: 23). - Understanding Northwest Coast Art: A Guide to Crests, Beings and Symbols
