Haida carver Denny Dixon was born in the early 1940’s in the village of Skidegate on Haida Gwaii, BC, Canada. He worked exclusively in argillite. Denny was strongly influenced by his brother Pat Dixon as well as by Pat McGuire, who he joined in Vancouver in 1969. Denny is known by collectors for his beautiful argillite poles, boxes, pendants and brooches. When he worked at the Montreal Museum, he presented one of his argillite boxes to the Empress of Japan.
