Herbert Joseph Rice (Herb)

As a Native of the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, Herb contributes to his heritage with his carvings and design work.

His totems and his animals are carved in red cedar, yellow cedar, alder or pine and depict traditional Salish and Kwakuitl designs.

Herb's approach is to combine the richness of his Coast Salish, First Nation heritage with a more contemporary style to his art-making.

The concepts and designs represent values, experiences, philosophies and aspirations of native and non-native individuals, families and organizations.

Herb's art is rendered as wall panels, doors, furniture, totems, talking sticks, figures, bowls, drums, and signs. His work can be found all over the world: Sweden, Great Britain Africa, New Zealand, Mexico, and the United States. Each piece reflects individual legends, teachings or personal stories of growth.

Herb Rice also gives workshops on Carving, Paddle Making, and Coast Salish Culture. Arrangements can be made for special events.

Herb Rice's studio is at the Whippletree Junction on the TransCanada Highway 7km south of Duncan where you can see him work surrounded by his works in progress.

His work is on sale at his studio where you are welcome to come and visit.
