Orca design by artist Kelly Robinson, Nuxalk/Nuu-chah-nulth
Small Ceramic Bowl with Orca design by artist Kelly Robinson.
Kelly Robinson was born in Nanaimo, British Columbia. His roots and family origin are in Bella Coola, BC with descendants from both the Nuxalk and Nuu-chah-nulth nations. He was exposed to First Nations artwork from an early age and was always interested in learning and refining the art — specifically the unique design forms of the Nuxalk. Under the guidance of his uncle, noted master carver, Alvin Mack, Kelly has developed his own techniques in creation of two and three dimensional art forms.
