Carver Michael Webber, a lifelong resident of Cordova, has strong family ties to Prince William Sound and the Copper River Delta. Webber draws from his Tlingit and Alutiiq ancestry for inspiration, often referring to historical sources as a means of reviving lost art forms. Webber takes great pride in his work, which he perceives as a means to connect with his ancestors. In addition to teaching at Prince William Sound Community College and creating commissioned work for private collections, Webber’s notable accomplishments include Best of Show and many first place awards at Cordova’s annual Iceworm Arts and Crafts Show, Best 3-D art for transformation mask at Cordova’s Fish Follies, and the raising of a 12-foot Eyak subsistence totem pole at the Ilanka Cultural Center.
