Ian Howie is a stone sculptor who lives in a rural area near Port Alberni. Until recently, Ian was a resident artist at the Side-door Studio at TOSH.
He personally collects the marble used in his sculptures from deposits on Vancouver Island and Quadra Island.
Ian is a power tool carver using diamonds saws, angle grinders and die grinders. All pieces are hand finished with diamond pads and files, then polished with silicone carbide sandpaper. All carvings are signed and covered with a natural oil sealant.
His larger sculptures are usually abstract, while the smaller ones tend to be stylized animals, birds, and waves.
