Gerry Dudoward was an outstanding Tsimshian carver. Over the years he developed a distinctive style, which is characterized by graceful lines and fine detailing.
Dudoward is widely recognized for his carefully carved Chiefs’ Frontlets, Talking Sticks and Dance Rattles. Dudoward frequently incorporated the main crests of his family into his works: Killer Whale (Gixpud Wadea) and Eagle (Lax’Kee).
Gerry Dudoward’s works have been exhibited in many group shows, both locally and internationally.
