Description

This post sits at the entrance to the townhouse development, sitting on the Mamquam Channel. The post features layers of carved salmon, essential to our waterway ecosystems.

Kasalus, also known as Richard Baker, was born into a family of artists. He started carving and drawing in 1974, learning the basics of technique and formline design from his family. He was a featured carver at the 1986 World Exposition, which opened many doors for him. In 1996, Richard opened a studio for the public on Capilano Reserve in North Vancouver. He divides his time between creating hand-engraved jewellery and carving wood.
