World Ice Art Championships in Fairbanks, AK

It was late February when we arrived in Fairbanks for the World Ice Art Championships. It was myself, Greg Butauski and Aaron Costic who were preparing to win the two man event. This event is the most difficult ice sculpting event in the world. The most talented carvers compete from all around the world. This year there was 35 teams in attendance.

Just a few years earlier we had won the four man event in the abstract division. The two man would prove to be a little different. Aaron had designed a piece called "Stop-Motion". It was a flying fish caught in the camera lens. You can see the same fish coming down from flight in three very dynamic positions. It was very fun to carve. We placed third with a very high score only missing second place by a single point. It was very close.

Junichi Nakamura walked away with the prize with Tak Ito as his partner. They carved a beautiful chameleon. Second place went to a Jon Iverson and Scott Hanson who carved a very cool Moose being run over by a snowmobile, a very fun piece.

In all, another great year for competition.
