Sedna with Whale, Seal, and Fish

Sedna, Inuit Goddess of the Sea

Sedna is the Inuit Goddess of the Sea
8″ x 8″ x 3/8″, Cook Inlet Glacier clay, multiglazed, cone 6 oxidation.
A small sub planet was named after Sedna recently. A google search will turn up lots of stories related to Sedna. She is the mother of the whales, seals, and fish. If you see sea weed out at sea, they say it is Sedna’s hair. A young lady bought one of the Sedna tiles and told me how she drown as a little girl and some paddling guy saw this interesting looking sea weed and when he grabbed it, he pulled her up and was surprised, but he did revive her. Cool.

Former civil engineer turned artist. Received BFA in printmaking. I developed a nice tile clay body using the glacial clay from the inlet next to Anchorage. I sell mainly at the Alaska Native Heritage Center during the Summer. I also go outside, what Alaskans call the rest of the U.S., to large arts and crafts fares.
