Joanassie Manning

Date of Birth: 1967
Residence: Cape Dorset
Medium: Serpentine
Joanassie only began carving consistently in 1987, at a relatively late age. He credits his grandfather, renowned carver Osuitok Ipeelee of Cape Dorset, as his greatest inspiration. Joanassie’s personal style particularly shines with his carvings of owls, as he characteristically inlays antler for the owls’ eyes to give them a dramatic and captivating stare.
