This blog is part travelogue, part journal, where I will be documenting the many interviews, conventions & competitions that will comprise my overview of the ice-sculpting industry. From the garage geniuses to the gallery gurus, I hope to cover every facet of what makes ice sculpting not only an art, but also a lucrative business.
I invite sculptors, vendors, fans -- and even ice groupies -- to contribute their thoughts on this booming industry. Ice: The Documentary is only a working title.
The good word of ice
Finally got an interview in my own city!!
Because of conflicting schedules, we could never set an on-camera interview date in stone... until a last minute call from the 'Reverend' himself. Rolando De La Garza (aka Reverend Butter of DLG Ice Factory) in Houston, Texas brings a new light to this ever-growing project. I've been told of some wild tales about this character, and now I have an interview that lives up to those stories. I hope to re-visit with Butter later this year.
Special thanks to my brother Michael for coming out to help on short notice! ANd for taking these awesome photos!!
