Ice Carving in Bay Harbor: “The Reptilian” earns a Gold Medal

Ice Sculpture Lizard Man

Greg Butauski, Master Ice Carver, competed in the Ice and Spice Festival in Bay Harbor, MI, on January 17 & 18th and scored a gold medal!

The festival, sanctioned by the National Ice Carving Association, consisted of both professional and amateur competitions.

For the professional competition, Greg carved “The Reptilian”—half man, half lizard warrior—out of 10 blocks of ice. He earned a gold medal with this sculpture. Greg carved a total of 12 hours, over two days, in freezing temperatures!

The next competition Greg will compete in on the winter circuit will be held in St. Joseph, MI. The season wraps up with the big US Nationals competition in Perrysburg, OH. Be sure to check back for the results of all the competitions!
