This time frame was one of the most fertile periods of creativity, with a seemingly insatiable appetite from the southern market for Inuit sculpture. The 1960's and early 70's saw the scale of sculpture growing. Broadly speaking this was the result of demands from art dealers, such as ourselves, which coincided with access to better tools and quarrying skills that allowed the artists to work with harder materials than the classic “soapstone”. Harder serpentine became the norm, especially from the Baffin Island communities.
The preponderance of works in this collection are on the smaller scale, presenting few obstacles to the space-challenged. There are many lovely pieces to chose from with something for every taste and budget. Please take the time to scroll though the pages in this collection. Multiple views are available. As always we look forward to discussing these art works with you and look forward to your questions.
