Ice Carving in St. Joseph: “Swordfish Hunter” wins a gold medal

Swordfish Hunter

St. Joseph held their annual Magical Ice Festival on February 7th and 8th in Michigan,  where Rock On Ice’s Greg Butauski and Jeff Petercsak competed in the team competition.

The ice sculpture, “Swordfish Hunter,” scored a gold medal! This sculpture used 8 blocks of ice (more than 1 ton) and took 8 hours to complete. Below are sketches of how it all came together.

Only two more competitions to go – the Green River Crystal Classic in Green River, WY, and the NICA US Nationals in Perrysburg, OH.
