Japanese Glass Float, etched by master artist FRANCIS POLLARD - Killer Whale design

Francis Pollard is a member of the Haida Nation, originating from Skitegat, British Columbia, Canada. The pollard family is world wide known as mainly Argillite carvers or jewelry makers - so here is a rare opportunity to acquire something really special.

The Haida Guaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) are the most western part of Canada. For centuries the natives of this island have used objects and materials floated onto their shores from Asian shipwrecks, whaling or fishing boats. This is a fantastic example. These large solid and heavy glass floats are extremely rare these days - add to it the superb quality of the hand etched and you have a very special piece for any serious native art collection. 

This float is very thick glass, heavy, dark green (I took some images in sunlight, which somehow look blue, but it's not, it's dark green!) It's does show some markers in the Japanese language. The artist signed the piece below the Whale design.

Measurements: approx. 9" diameter

It is showcased on a wooden tripod stand which is not originally made for the piece and is not included. However, it fits quite perfectly. If you are interested in it, please let me know.
