Experiential Ice Carving sessions…

[News] Experiential Ice Sculpture Sessions with Fish Eagle Brandy…

“Few people have been lucky enough to see an ice sculpture first hand here in hot, wild Africa… Fewer people in South Africa have been luckily enough to witness one of the Ice Art ice sculptors performing a live ice carving with chainsaws and chisels… and even fewer individuals have had the opportunity to actually try the unique art of ice carving for themselves on a raw, untouched block!” says Ice Art owner James Cussen

Ice Art assisted Distell and Fish Eagle Brandy in creating a memorable ice carving experience, where staff from Distell teamed up to try their hand at creating an ice sculpture replica of the Fish Eagle Brandy bottle… from a solid 150kg block of clear ice.

Matthew Smyth from Ice Art first performed a live carving of the iconic Fish Eagle to show the various techniques and methods for ice carving, and how to apply them to the ice. Perfecting the skill of ice carving takes many years, however, the basics of ice sculpting were demonstrated and once his Masterpiece was completed it was the guests’ opportunity to create their own glistening ice sculpture from scratch. In teams of 5 they chipped and carved away to create their own masterpiece in ice and there was a prize giving at the end.

Daryl Dixon – Brand manager for Fish Eagle Brandy at Distell had this to say after the ice sculpting session: “It went down really well with the guys, thanks a bunch, everything was fantastic!…”

Ice sculptures have always fascinated people, young and old, and what a unique team building exercise to work on such a unique medium and see it come to life as a complete ice carving replica.
