Many people have told us that our specially commissioned ice sculpture was one of the best things in the show! We have to admit that it has turned out so well, we are thinking of making some more!
We usually make this statue in composite stone, but we needed to find a way to make the statue in ice to match the chilled out theme of the garden - naturally it could not just melt so we eventually hit on the idea of molding the piece in high performance polycarbonates. Then we simply found a mad scientist and voila! There we are.
The iceboy is super realistic and is a permanent piece - even withstanding the effects of UV radiation. Better yet, it can be uplit at night or in an interior setting. The iceboy is currently unique but there are strong rumours that he has been sold already so watch this space.
A superinjunction prevents me from revealing any more.
