Northwest Coast Gifts is proud to be carrying a line of sleek tableware co-designed by Komoyue and Kwakwaka'wakw/Tlingit artist Corrine Hunt. These sustainable and durable items - which include tealight holders, serving platters, and napkin rings - will make a sophisticated addition to any home. Each item displays an abstracted Northwest Coast First Nations pattern. Due to their solid construction and progressive design, each item packs and travels well, which makes this line perfect for gift-giving and travel.

Corrine Hunt is a well known First Nations artist who sells to galleries throughout North America. Her work is collected around the world. In 2006, she designed the logo for the World Peace Forum, which was held in Vancouver. She also has large installations at Whistler's Hilton Hotel and at the office for Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC). In 2009, Corrine co-created the medals for the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver with designer Omer Arbel. Corrine has been working as a jeweller since 1985.
