Dudley Carter

The park’s namesake, Dudley Carter, was an internationally renowned local artist specializing in wood carving, a craft that he learned from the Kwakuitl people along the coast of British Columbia, where Mr. Carter resided until his early adulthood. Mr. Carter carved many totems, sculptures, and Haida House replicas that exist in the area, including:

  • Three Panel Abstraction at Luke McRedmond Landing
  • Fantail Bird at the Public Safety Building
  • High Mountain Companions the western field at Redmond Town Center
  • Wek Wek and the Holukmeyumko and Two Thunderbirds grace the Pet Memorial Garden at Marymoor
  • Legend of the Moon, at the Marymoor Park entrance
  • Carvings at the Redmond Library include:
    • Bird Woman
    • Birds and Waterfall
    • Desert Scout
    • Rivalry of the Winds
    • Fawn and Bird

Dudley Carter’s Haida House Replica Number 4

The park includes Dudley Carter’s Haida House Replica Number 4, a piece of artwork that Mr. Carter carved in the 1980s and reconstructed on site in the early 1990s while he was artist in residence at the park. The Haida House is a roughly 600 square foot, single-room wooden structure that includes ornate carved figures on the roof eaves and an iconic totem pole entry. The Haida House Replica Number 4 is designated as a King County landmark.
