Friday Feature: Potlatch Bowls

These bowls are  a contemporary representation of the bowl and serving pieces used during the potlatches and feasts held by the native people of the Northwest Coast

The Dogfish is a helpful spirit, a mediator between the spirit world and that of humans.

The Bear is a symbol of earthly power and was sometimes used to indicate the authority of the chief. His short snout, large teeth and paws make him an unmistakable figure, representing a particularity great force and might.

The Raven brought light to the world through his abilities as a trickster and his power to transform into a human. Raven is also the symbol of knowledge and has the ability to make anything happen.
