Dark Waters, 2008
Lawrence "Ulaaq" Ahvakana, Inupiaq
fused glass panel
20.5" high x 20.5" wide

The inspiration for this panel is the abundant waters of the Chukchi Sea, a part of the Arctic Ocean. This sea is fed by nutrient-rich waters from the south, and is one of the most abundant marine ecosystems in the world, including whales and walrus. Waters from the Chukchi are an important source of nutrients, heat and freshwater for the Arctic Ocean.

This panel can be hung on the wall, or placed in a stand.

Lawrence "Ulaaq" Ahvakana has created art for over 30 years. He is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, the Institute of American Indian Arts, and Cooper Union School of Art. He is most famous for his Inuit or Inupiaq inspired works in wood, alabaster, marble, glass, and cast in bronze. 

Established as an outstanding sculptor with a national reputation, his works are included in a large number of major museums, numerous corporate collections, and in national and international private collections. 

"I was born in Fairbanks, Alaska and raised in Barrow and Anchorage. My first introduction to the Arts was watching my mother, a very competent skin sewer.

All my life, I was surrounded by my culture and my people, the Inupiaq of northern Alaska. The dances and songs of the Inupiaq tradition are our oral history — the emotional interpretation of our respect for and involvement with the environment of the North Slope of Alaska.

My work incorporates many media and materials and a sense of my cultural design. The interpretation is very personal. I hope the conceptual format gives viewers an idea of the Inupiaq tradition."  - Lawrence
