Contemporary killerwhale Earrings by Mark Preston

Sterling Silver 7.7 grams



  • Designed by Mark Preston

    Mark Preston (Tenna-Tsa-Teh) is of Tlingit and Irish ancestry and presently resides in the Yukon. He studied silver carving with well known master jeweler and carver Phil Janze (Gitskan Nation). Preston cites Mark Rothko and Jack Bush as influences in his more recent paintings and artworks which transcend the traditional Tlingit Native art form and move him closer into the abstract and contemporary realm.

  • The Killer Whale Symbol in Indigenous Art

    Both revered and feared, the Killer Whale has a long history of being the hunter of the sea. The traits and characteristics of the Killer Whale are strength, dignity as well as prosperity and longevity. They are known to follow a matriarchal society, so we honour the mother Killer Whale for its resilience in nature.
