Women are the basket makers, with each cultural group producing a number of distinctive styles and motifs. Basketry technicques are also used to make hats, mats and bags. All these served a variety of practical or ceremonial purposes. Many baskets feature woven motifs, which may be representational or abstract.
Landon has been carving since 2002. He has worked with a number of artists such as Haida artist Clarence Mills, who he assisted on totem poles and learned to carve jewellery with. He has also worked on masks with Tsimshian artist, Phil Gray and Haida artist, Jay Simeon, who have both been a source of inspiration. In February of 2008, Landon graduated from the Northwest Coast Jewellery Arts Program at the Native Education College in Vancouver, which was led by Kwakwaka’wakw/Haida artist, Dan Wallace. In 2011, Landon released his first two limited edition silkscreen prints.
