The Spirit of the Totems
After 14 years of specific travel to engage with Indigenous people from the High Arctic, Peru, South-West Desert, Guatemala and Haida Gwaii, Pat Bavin has built a relationship among these spirited dwellers to design a series of totems. He acknoledges the importance to create a totem that expresses his story with no copying of design.
With a team of 4 glass artists under the mastership of his son Ryan, this group of glass totems were constructed over a year and a half of hot sculpting. This series signifies the most artistic development in their 30 years as a father-son team, engaging multiple techniques, many of which were new and spontaneous methods. Each totem has internal LED lighting with attached story to enhance your health, wealth and happiness. Find out more here.
