A ceramic art installation that is decidedly Canadian is now up at The Common in The Forks Market.

Artist Jordan Van Sewell speaks at the installation's unveiling on March 9

Created by Jordan Van Sewell, the piece, called "Canoes," is in three parts: each a canoe navigating different waters, featuring a total of 19 different characters.

Van Sewell says each one is a unique story, but "we're all in it together."



Van Sewell says it took a year from inception to actually nailing up the piece.
