Salmon Trout Ceramic Platter
Laura Wee Láy Láq
These striking ceramic platters are handcrafted by award-winning Stó:lō potter Laura Wee Láy Láq. They take their elegant shape from the ovoid, a Northwest Coast formline element, with a bas-relief salmon trout design. Perfectly sized for an appetizer or dessert, they are available in blue, teal, or black.
Laura is known for experimenting with form and movement in her work. She specializes in handbuilding pottery and using traditional firing techniques, including burnishing and sawdust firing. Her one-of-a-kind works are exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally.
