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.

I'm back home from a super quick/exhausting trip to NYC...
I had the pleasure to spend some time with Takeo & Shintaro of Okamoto Studios.
These guys offer up yet another unique perspective to the current/future US ice industry.
As with every sculptor I've taped... It was an honor to watch Takeo perform his craft.
Thanks guys for accommodating to my super tight schedule. I cant wait to revisit.
I also want to thank my good friend Rick for helping me out with this tough trip.
