A former beauty Queen, Sam chose a beautiful location on a beautiful summers' evening to have her family and friends around to celebrate her 21st birthday. Sam wanted a Vodka Luge that was bold, dramatic and would (of course) make a huge statement; what better than her name in ice and proclaiming she is 21! "SAM21" Vodka Luge was decided upon.
We plotted her name 'SAM' into our computer and then let the computer control the cutting blades of the CNC machine. The results are a very clean, precise and sharp ice sculpture. We could have hand-carved the ice sculpture, however for something as bold as this, a CNC machine although takes longer to create, produces just the right finish.
We then drilled a single channel through the ice to turn the ice sculpture into a Vodka Luge - 1/2m long channel. From all accounts, the next morning there were a few 'sore heads' - well, what else would you expect from a fun-filled 21st birthday party?
Because her name is short, the letters/font can be made carved thicker. Longer names are of course possible to carve in ice, however they need to be in proportion and thus can be a tad thinner. The secret is; the shorter the name the bolder the piece will be.
We lit the Vodka Luge from behind using refraction which literally made the Vodka Luge shimmer and shine as the night drew on.
