Terry Cass (Nanton, AB ) has had a lifelong interest in North American wildlife and spends much of his time in the mountain and lake regions of western Canada. His inspiration for his carving comes from his time spent in the outdoors, and he has been carving stone for over 20 years. His stylized animals such as owls and loons make his wildlife carvings unique.
Recently, Terry has been carving sculpture using prehistoric shells that date back 70 million years. Terry was able to secure a limited amount of the fossil from a southern Alberta quarry which he used to create gifts commissioned for world leaders at the G-8 Summit held in Kananaskis Alberta in 2003.
