Gotta admit...There is something coooool about ice carving...and it's not just the mercury.
Between the awesome array of power and hand tools, huge and functional pieces, travel chances across the world, and super events in the states. Ice carving is truly a superb craft for so many reasons and I am grateful to have the chance to practice the art.
Blendon Mid School Bulldog Demo
Must be luck, to of apprenticed under Master Ice Carver G. Butauski and Prof Carver Trey Justice. With their guidance, I medaled every competition entered my first season as an amateur carver. And started off the following year at Branson, MO with a 1st place Iguana to cap off my amateur career, on to Prof competitions.. And Mt. Holly, NJ was a "crash" of a lesson. I broke the wings off of my piece and as they say "learned the hard way". . .
2nd season down, and I was able to pick the brains of some of the best carvers in the US, learn alot, see alot more, and always helps to build confidence in fresh new ideas and designs. I prefer to try designs that have never been seen or used in comp season.. It may hold me from gold as of now, but with more practice and the assistance of NICA, Rock on Ice, and the support of family, we hope to see you all at the olympics one day....
