The Sun represents abundance, life, healing, and warmth. Released from a box by the Raven, the Sun Chief inhabits the sky and could only be reached by climbing a chain of arrows. The Sun is often carved on totems and masks and sits atop the tallest totem pole.
Born to the Frog Clan of Carrier Native, Charles started his professional career in 1974 and created unique Northwest Coast designs. Charles gained his inspiration from master artists Lloyd Wadhams Senior, George and Dennis Matilpi from Kwakiutl Nation. Charles developed his own unique style expressing his integrity, strength of character and gentle spirit. He is widely known for his design works in platinum, gold, white gold and silver jewelry. Charles also carves totem poles and wooden sculptures. Two of Charles' poles stand in front of Stoney Creek Band Longhouse.
