A new slant on The traditional Martini Glass - carving a hand holding the Martini Glass! This was carved for Warwick University's Engineering Society Ball held at The Fazely Studios in Birmingham. A sophisticated and elegant Vodka Luge. Placed in a prominent or central location a Vodka Luge like this Martini Glass will set the tone and atmosphere for the event or party.
Carving a Hand Holding a Martini Glass
Taking a chainsaw to a 20-stone ice block and creating the outline of the Martini Glass and hand was the first job. As the shape slowly revealed it self, different power and hand tools were used to create the final design. With ice carving, one false chip, nudge or shaving can alter or worse still, ruin the design the carver had in his head. Sometimes there is nothing for it but to start again - an expensive option. Although we may work from a picture, drawing or image, the final 3D design is always held in the carver's head.
Many clients survey the market (there aren't too many ice carvers in the UK today) and invariably look immediately at the price - which is fair enough and rightly so when choosing whom to carve their birthday, party or Corporate Event Vodka Luge. This is a good approach, however what one is paying for is the skill of the carver, his imagination, his flair and when it comes to certain shapes - how good or realistic is the final piece. Therer are carvers and then there are Award winning carvers. Naturally, they are a tad more expensive - but on is getting a superb statement piece.
Carved fom one single ice block, this Hand holding a Martini Glass Vodka Luge stands 1m by 1/2m wide and weighs (carved) around 12-13-stone. This is a dramatic and spectacular piece for any Ball, party of event where a touch of elegance is required. Modern yet classic.
