After being introduced to sand sculpture by Kirk Rademaker from San Fransisco ( www.sandguy.com ) I was dumbstruck. How on earth could these amazing sculpture even stand up.
After playing on the beach for a couple of weeks I returned to the USA to get in some real practice at South Padre Island. Being one of the "homes" of sand sculpture I was helped by some of the top sculptors in the world - Thanks Amazing Walter, Sandy Feet, Fred Mallet and Marty and Christy.
In sand sculpture its more that just creating someting amazing in a material that looks like it shouldn't be able to do that - its about the people you meet and the colest people I have ever met - Sand Sculptors.
I competed in my first master competition in Port Aransis,TX and had yet another great time. another great thing is how you learn from others while competing and also the fact that they are never too tired to show you how to do anything or lend you the right tools and so on and so on. Go to the links page for more great sand sculpture sites.
Sand sculpture is a small part of my work at the moment but I intend to spend more time during 2004 in the USA competing and helping others to have a go on the beach!
