The perfect gift for PEETZ fans and collectors of original Westcoast art…

PEETZ inaugural Artist Series reel design, the 2015 Circle of Life has inspired the concept of the Chain of Life for the next Artist Series limited edition reels – all hand carved by Kwaguilth master carver and artist, Jason Henry Hunt. These annual reel designs will focus on those West Coast species that rely on healthy Pacific salmon stocks for their existence.

For the 2016 limited edition Chain of Life reel design, we are pleased to introduce “Orca, Salmon & Moon” where the Orca is represented as the primary totem.  This design depicts an Orca hunting salmon under a full moon. The moon is represented by a beautiful piece of abalone shell (sourced as a by-product of the sustainable New Zealand “Pāua” abalone fishery).

According to Mr. Hunt, “I wanted to incorporate the moon in this design because it is a symbol of transformation and a guiding light in the darkness. It is my vision that this 2016 reel design reflects our capacity to transform our thoughts and bring about long lasting change to ensure the future health of the Pacific Northwest’s precious salmon resources for all dependent species.”

This beautiful First Nations design is available as a limited release of 90 reels for PEETZ fans and West Coast art collectors worldwide. Each reel is individually hand carved using traditional tools by Mr. Hunt, numbered and signed.

DID YOU KNOW – Each year, PEETZ also commissions six “Artist’s Proofs” in addition to the 90 limited editions. These reels are not available for sale – instead they are reserved to support the fundraising efforts of organizations focused on salmon conservation and habitat rehabilitation. PEETZ is pleased to report that the first two Orca, Salmon & Moon Artist Proof Reels were donated to the Pacific Salmon Foundation for the 2016 West Coast Resorts’ Salmon Masters Dinner & Auction. The reels sold at auction for $4500 each.
