A born and raised third generation Montanan, Western and Wildlife Sculptor, Jack W Muir resides on the beautiful shores of Flathead Lake, in the North West Corner of Montana, the setting for his home and studio. Wildlife and the mystique of the west abound in this part of Montana, both of which provide unlimited inspiration for Jack's work.
After receiving a degree in Fine Art from Montana State University, Jack founded Kalispell Art Casting, established in 1978. Kalispell Art Casting is one of the largest and most respected art casting foundries in the west. Kalispell Art Casting sits on 2 acres with 20,000 square feet of floor space. Aside from casting his own art work, Jack casts for many prominent and well known artists including Sherry Salari Sander, Fred Fellows, Deborah Copenhaver Fellows, Bob Scriver and many other talented artists from across the United States and Canada.
Kalispell Art Casting is known, not only for casting statuary bronzes of all sizes, the foundry is well known for the design, engineering, enlarging, casting, patination, delivery and installation of monumental sculptures. These monuments have been installed in noteable establishments across the country. These establishments include the Calagary Stampede grounds, the Boon and Crocket Club, the Parker Ranch in Hawaii, the Denver Zoo, the City of Olympia, Montana State University, State of Montana and several other locations.
