John Lancaster

John Lancaster was born in Alert Bay, British Columbia, Canada, which is a fishing village located along the northeastern coast of Vancouver Island. He is a member of the Kwakwaka'wakw Nation. John takes the Wolf, revered as the powerful hunter on land, and the Sun, an element that exists in many legends, as his family crest symbols.

John Lancaster has been making First Nations design jewelry since 1986 and notes that his cousin Alfred Seaweed was instrumental in teaching him the skills of silver and gold jewelry carving. Coming from a family of expert goldsmiths, John’s skills and expertise is revealed in the beautiful jewelry he creates. His designs depict traditional Kwagiulth motifs and legendary creatures.

Presently, residing in Victoria on Vancouver Island to be near his family and close to his roots, he is one of many Northwest Native artists who are preserving their heritage through artwork.
