Tom Hans


(1925- )

Tom is one of the most prolific argillite carvers living in British Columbia today. He grew up in Skidegate and started to carve argillite at the age of thirteen. His grandfather was Henry Young, and his father was Ike Hans. His father both taught and encouraged him in the art of argillite carving. For more than fifty years, Tom has been dedicated to carving argillite and teaching younger carvers. In terms of Tom”s carving style, he often depicts legends and myths, rather than singular crest figures. His pieces also contain a great amount of deatil. He holds Eagle as his family crest.
