Salish Weave Box Set I
Box Set I is a portfolio of nine original limited editions of 50 serigraphs each collected from 2004 to 2008. These prints were commissioned by the Salish Weave Collection from four prominent Coast Salish artists, namely Susan Point, Maynard Johnny Jr., Chris Paul, and lessLIE.
All serigraphs are silkscreen prints made by Victoria printer Eric Bourquin of Seacoast Screen Printing. They all measure 22 inches by 22 inches and the size of the printed image varies from 15 to 18 inches.
Each series of nine serigraphs is housed in a custom maple and walnut box designed by the Salish Weave Collection and handcrafted by Victoria cabinet maker Kory Larsen of the Finished Room. The box allows for the display of one serigraph behind an acid-free Plexiglas and for the storage of the remaining 8 prints individually placed in an acid-free sleeve. The box measures 24 inches by 24 inches and is 2-inches deep. It can be placed on a table or hung on a wall.
