Porcelain Dishes by Laura Wee Láy Láq, Salish/Kwakwaka'wakw
These porcelain dishes with their bright glazes and bold Salmon design have been created by Salish/Kwakwaka'wakw artist Laura Wee Láy Láq.
The Salmon is a symbol of abundance, wealth and prosperity because Salmon is the primary food source for Northwest Coastal people, representing the ability to provide for your family. Salmon are Supernatural beings who give up their life to feed our people. We hold them in high esteem and honour their return every year.
Laura Wee Láy Láq studied ceramics along with painting and printmaking at Douglas College and at the Vancouver School of Art. Teaching has been a significant aspect of Wee Láy Láq’s career, and she has taught at both the Emily Carr University of Art + Design and Coquitlam College. She has also produced a line of Northwest Coast dinnerware called Kwelas. Her work has been featured in exhibitions at the Grunt Gallery, Vancouver and the Surrey Art Gallery.
