Salish Salmon Weave


  • Medium: glass (sand-carved slumped and kiln-cast), yellow cedar, paint
  • Size: 60 × 40 × 5.5 inches (vertical or horizontal install)
  • Reference Code: X131012


“Salish Salmon Weave” allows the viewer to see salmon beneath the waves, which are engraved with traditional Coast Salish design elements such as crescents, wedges and ovals creating an overall rhythmic flow. When salmon are returning to start back up the Fraser River they wait until the tide is just right for them and hang out in the Salish Sea. Elders often spoke of a time when looking over the side of a Salish dugout canoe, the waters appeared black because of the countless number of salmon beneath the swells. Today their numbers are much less. It is now an age for protecting and preserving the wild salmon of the Pacific Northwest coast.

Coast Salish (Musqueam)

(1952- )

Susan began making limited edition prints on her kitchen table in 1981 while working as a legal secretary. She received several early commissions, which established her reputation for innovative proposals and for completing projects on time, on budget and at the highest level. She took courses in silver, casting and carving, all of which led to monumental sculptures in mixed media, and she was the first Northwest Coast artist to work in glass. She continues to release a number of print editions each year, but her focus has been on commissioned sculpture.
