Sports Themed Ice

2 weeks ago I was involved in designing 4 ice sculptures for a dinner function held in Baton Rouge River Center with around 500 attendees. The client requested ice sculptures to be sports themed while displaying the company logos for the 4 major sponsors. Apparently it's related to someone who won the Heisman trophy last year(I have no idea how vital that is, but it's something to do with football).
I didn't get the chance to set it up myself, but Iceman told me the reaction he got from the chef who ordered it was really good(you could tell from his face captured on the Louisiana Select Seafood sculpture), and they used the sculptures for the next morning as well. Next is the motorcycles sculptures which was held last Saturday, I hope we've got some good shots so that I can share them here with you guys. Thank you so much for your comments on my wrist drawing. I am getting better now I am glad =)

  4. Incredible what you and Iceman of course are doing with ice. I never saw that before, very interesting. I really like the Greek column, very simple and classic.
    Thank you for all your nice comments on my iris serie. It is a first for me to go on the same subject.
    Have you tried your Chinese set brushes?

  7. My mouth dropped open when I saw these! No wonder your wrist hurts! Don't you have to use a chain saw of something to do these? LOL!!! Great work. How the heck do you learn to do something like this?

  9. Did you design these? How is this done? On the computer then carved to ice? or hand done? We'd love to see a blog on the process with wip pics. This is really fascinating. I hope you make a good living at it.

  10. Jeez..I can't get my act together for two whole weeks and I miss a whole slew of your posts. Great ice sculptures! Glad to see more. And the wrist - so sorry about it, but despite what you say, the art looks like vintage Alex to me. And finally, the little demon - wow. perfect hair - again, and a perfect kitty pose.

  11. Are you carving, designing, or both? Either way, what you're doing is working because these are fantastic!

  12. You're welcome, Alex. When I was researching for my rant google came up with some you tube vids of people eating dog turds! No I didn't watch...Not sure if they are certifiable or just desperate for 15 minutes of fame...

  16. Alex, thanks for the comments on my blue drawings. I've got to say that the blue on your wrist sketch looks great! (btw, glad to know you are feeling better). Now, these sculptures are fantastic. I've read comments asking about the process, and I am curious too...
