Clayton Gladstone

The Master Carver Clayton Gladstone has been carving wood and jewellery in Skidegate on Haida Gwaii since 1977. His grandfather was Charles Edenshaw who influenced most of today's Haida Master Carvers. As member of the Eagle Clan, Clayton trained and worked together with his cousin Bill Reid in the late 1970's and 1980's. He also carved with Tim Boyko and Garner Moody. Clayton's work is highly respected by museums and collectors all over the world. He enjoys sharing his knowledge and views about traditional and contemporary Haida Art and was featured in the film "The New Masters" as part of the "Ravens and Eagles: Haida Art" series in 2002. He is also a teacher of carving techniques at the Haida Gwaii Heritage Centre and Museum at Qay'llnagaay on the Queen Charlotte Islands in BC, Canada.
