Breathing Stone: Contemporary Haida Argillite Sculpture

The book profiles—part biographically, but related to their art—fifteen exceptional artists who maintain the traditional Northwest Coast art form. With 200 colour photographs taken in artists’ workshops, galleries, collectors’ homes and on-site in Haida Gwaii, Breathing Stone is informative, original and systematically organized. Inspirited by Haida master Bill Reid, the last twenty years have seen the emergence of prolific new sculptors on Haida Gwaii. Throughout Breathing Stone, the Haida artists display the commitment of their work and passion. For them, argillite sculpture is a source of intense pride, a means of showing the world their rich culture.

Sheehan, the author of several books, is a recognized authority on argillite sculpture.
