Terri Talas was widely known for her portrayals of nature and wildlife in mural installations for museums and nature centers. Today her artwork opens an extraordinary window into the natural world through sculptures and pendant carvings created in ancient wooly mammoth fossil materials and naturally shed caribou antler. Her hand carved pendants are miniature works of art in rich colors reflecting mineralization over thousands of years. Her sculptures have been exhibited at the Great Plains Museum, University of Nebraska. “Working in fossilized materials is filled with mystery – each piece is unique and I never know what an inner layer will unfold. The process is magical.”
