Raven and the Light Pendant (1993)



Ron Russ


(1953- )

Ron Russ was born in Masset on Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) in 1953. His father is the hereditary chief of the Eagle clan of Masset and his mother is a descendant of the Nisga’a people. Ron has been interested in Haida art for as long as he can remember. He would draw pictures illustrating the stories told to him by his grandparents. His grandfather showed him how to sharpen his tools and he went on to help him carve boats. He read all the books on the art and culture and studied the old pieces in books and in museum collections. He also talked with the other young carvers who were in a similar position of interest but not yet ready to take the next step.
