CULTURAL & DESIGN DEVELOPMENT
Cory Douglas is involved with the decolonization of the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations (MST) by providing art and cultural knowledge. Cory Douglas is a Squamish/Haida artist who practices both Northwest Coast Formline and Coast Salish design. He offers presentations/workshops on the differences to design teams in the city. Cory has an associate degree in Civil Engineering Technology and in Architectural Engineering and Technology, including +25 years of experience in the BC building industry and +15 years of art and culture.
Since October of 2006 Cory has been focused on developing his ancestors’ roots in artistry, and refining himself as he merges his academic architectural vocation with his innate creativity. Together, mixed with his passion for detail, this marriage has come alive into what he defines as 'Modern Formline'. Every creation begins as a vision, followed by a sketch; the piece merges into its personality and is then digitally mastered, painted or engraved. Cory’s late grandfather, Teddy Brown, belonged to both Killer whale (Tsimshian) and Eagle (Haida) clans.
As an apprentice to Jordan Seward, he has been studying traditional Haida form and Formline. Cory has graduated from the Northwest Coast Jewelry Arts Program (2011), taught by Dan Wallace. Aaron Nelson Moody is his mentor for Classic Coast Salish Art. With their traditional knowledge and his vision, Cory compliments his rich culture, allowing him to reach a new audience with 'Modern Formline'
