You Might Need an Ice Dragon for Your Wedding

And if you do, you might want to get in touch with my brother, Bill, who just last week created a dragon ice sculpture live on Good Day New York.

See him in action at myfoxny.com.

Here’s Your 6-Foot Ice Menorah [Video]

Did you miss Chanukah on Ice last night in Central Park? Here’s a quick vid and some pics. They feature the ice sculpture menorah, because it was carved by my brother Bill, and I got to help set it up. Chabad of the West Side organized. Thank you, Chabad of the West Side! Happy Hanukkah!

It Must Be Love: Boho Chic and the Shot Luge Together at Last

Love ice sculpture Max Zuleta
Love has finally brought together two wedding trends that were destined to fall into each others arms: boho chic and shot luges. My ice sculptor brother put me on to the current popularity of the iconic Love sculpture as a shot luge for weddings, and this version was created by Max Zuleta, a member of the Chicago-based ice sculpture collective Art Below Zero.

The sculpture is a cool riff on on the pop art image created by Robert Indiana and adopted as a symbol of the bohemian, hippie culture in the 1960s. The shot luge, I think, is a more contemporary development. They make a great couple, no?

Here’s the version of Robert Indiana’s Love sculpture in New York:
