Description: Skidegate argillite master carvers Albert and Rufus Moody inspired Alfie Collinson's interest in art. Carving argillite, a black slate found only in Haida Gwaii, Alfie is known among his peers to be one of the most gifted contemporary carvers. We follow Alfie on a day-long trip to the distant Slate-chuck Mountain, a trip he takes once a year for his materials; we learn that the slabs of stone while very heavy are also fragile. The journey requires strength and determination, much like Alfie's story; from part-time carver to full-time artist who carves stories out of stone.
