Salmon Trout Ceramic Platter
Laura Wee Láy Láq
This striking, ceramic platter is handcrafted by award-winning Stó:lō potter Laura Wee Láy Láq. It takes its elegant shape from the ovoid, a Northwest Coast formline element, engraved with a bas-relief salmon trout design. Perfectly sized for desserts and appetizers, this unique "Ancient Jasper" coloured platter will be sure to start a conversation at your next potluck.
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.
