Its was amazing to be invited to Banff Lake Louise, Canada for the international sculpting competition and 150 year celebration of the Canada. The theme for the competition was "True North". Each 2 person team from around the world was given 15 blocks of ice or 4500 lbs and 34 hours to transform the ice into works of art. I represented The United States of America and competed solo due to flight issues my teammate had coming in from Europe. Teams from around the world selected my piece for Carvers Choice Award, Thank you fellow sculptors, Banff Lake Louise and the Fairmont Resort for the experience.
