Speck grew up in a time when many aspects of Kwagiutl traditions were still active, and he acquired a deep knowledge of the culture, which is reflected in the high quality of his art. Audrey Hawthorn mentions Speck as one of a few very gifted people who were well acquainted with the traditions [and] were themselves master carvers who kept alive and vigorous all aspects of Kwagiutl carving (Kwagiutl Art, 1979:ix).
