This elegant, glazed porcelain platter is handcrafted by award-winning Stó:lō ceramicist Laura Wee Láy Láq. The platter takes its elegant shape from the ovoid, a Northwest Coast formline element, engraved with a bas-relief Eagle's Talon design, made exclusively for the MOA Shop.  Perfect for any dinner table.

Laura is known for experimenting with form and movement in her work. She specializes in hand-building pottery and using traditional firing techniques, including burnishing and sawdust firing. Her one-of-a-kind works are exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally.
