Lattimer Gallery and Lattimer Gallery YVR have started carrying the ceramic work of Coast Salish artist Patrick Leach. Patrick learned ceramics under Master Potter Erdman Tuemp, from Lillooet. Patrick specializes in a technique called sgraffito, which involves glazing pieces and then hand-carving them after they have been fired to reveal the contrasting clay colour beneath. Pieces range in price from $60.00 CAD to $700.00 CAD and the imagery that Patrick works with includes weaving patterns, salmon motifs, and floral arrangements.
