Morgan Asoyuf, Artist

Working with the design ideas of gold and matte black colours, I immediately thought of the sun and moon, and the way celestial bodies have influenced Northwest Coast culture through tales of the heavens and supernatural beings. I wanted a visual design that shows the way the sun and moon are interconnected, as well as an ancestor-descendant relationship with the coastal animals.

Working on this product was truly a learning experience for me, as I got a glimpse into the Ts’msyen culture and beliefs.

The biggest challenge was the reverse side of the centrepiece, where I had to strike the right balance between the art concept and our engineering guidelines for a coin of this dimension. Honouring the culture was crucial, and having Morgan approve of my model before moving onto the master tooling provided the validation I needed, as it meant I had succeeded in translating her visual language to the engraving.
