Journey of the Daughter of the Killer Whale Clan

Journey of the Daughter of the Killer Whale Clan is a permanent installation of black porcelain sculptured tile set in concrete, and bordered with black sand. It is intended to be reminiscent of the Spindle Whorls used by Alaska native artists to prepare yarns for their Chilkat or Ravenstail style weavings.

This piece is deliberately over scaled, at 6 feet in ​diameter. It is shown surrounded by the river rock of the landscaping in the Dudley Carter Memorial sculpture garden by the King County Library in Redmond Washington. The dedication ceremonies were filmed and archived on the city website.
