Cliff Supernault started carving soapstone, alabaster and lava rock 16 years ago. His only instruction came from two Saturdays with professional stone carver, Brian Clarke. Born in Paddle Prairie, a Metis settlement in Northern Alberta, Cliff spent his childhood stalking birds and animals. He studied their habits, their body structures and their movements. Now he carves their bodies and emotions into soft lines, which often flow around a human face. This powerful combination of man and animal symbolizes our spiritual connection - and responsibility - to Mother Earth.
Cliff’s carvings are sold around the world, from Europe to Asia. Owners include artist, Robert Bateman; singer, Buffy St. Marie; famous American teacher, Jamie Esqualante and David Suzuki plus many Canadian premiers and American governors and senators. Cliff’s work has also been presented at prestigious events such as the Esquao Awards, Circle of Honour and Human Rights Awards. Cliff also created a powerful thunderbird carving for the organizers of the100-year Treaty Eight Signing Celebrations.
Cliff and his wife Esther live on a hillside acreage near Stony Plain, Alberta. They have a son, daughter and two granddaughters.
