Table Top Sculptures
We can't always answer the question, "does size matter?" but we offer great bang for the buck with our smaller tabletop sculptures. Whether you want to bring visitors to your trade show booth, set a display for a beach wedding, make a splash at Comic Con, or create a small presentation in a store window, we can accommodate you. We bring the sand, the table and the skill.
Sometimes it’s just impossible to drop ten tons of sand at a location. Indoor venues don’t always take kindly to the idea and the logistics can be overwhelming and costly.
Have a look at some of our tabletop sculptures. While far smaller than floor sculptures, the attraction and fascination of sand sculpting’s appeal is not diminished as a sculpture complete with a detailed logo is created on a tabletop. Often, a tabletop sculpture where the sculptor can stand throughout the carving and easily interact with spectators is more entertaining: especially when your sculptor is as personable, knowledgeable and naturally entertaining in his own right!
Recent Tabletop Sculptures
1) The image at top right features a sculpture created for the Puerto Rico Tourism Booth at the New York Times Travel Show. The composition touches on many attractions featured in the Island’s marketing; surfing, palm trees with a small waterfall representing the rain forests, a turtle and fish, a sail boat and even a section of the famous Castillo Morro!
2) The second sculpture started as a castle but took a slightly celestial turn after the event organizer made an offhand comment about whether I could morph into other design. It was carved at the Times Square Marriot for the annual Holiday Gift Fair, a media only event to promote the upcoming seasons hottest new gifts.
3) The lighthouse seen at right was carved special for New Jersey Tourism also at the Javits Center in New York City. The house it is attached to is known as The Red Mill, a historic attraction located in Clinton, New Jersey and the pumpkins were added to promote an upcoming pumpkin sling competition.
4) Ox Tools is a company out of Australia. When they decided to introduce their tools in the States, they took a booth in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida for the hardware show. The ox seen here is a 3D representation of the corporate logo seen on the display board in the background. It was created using only their tools! (which I got to take home!)
5) Next we have two sculptures created for Nintendo. The first is at their flagship store in Rockefeller Plaza in New York, while the second was done but a few weeks later for the most attended event for nerds and costumers known as Comic Con! The castle featured was inspired by a screen shot taken from the new Legend Of Zelda video game! It was rewarding when fans would take a look and without hesitation ask if that was, ? Island!
6) This is the top view of a 36” X 36” table top sculpture created at the New York Times Travel Show for the Atlantic City Tourism Board’s “DO AC” campaign. It had interest from every view but I like this the best!
7) This sculpture was done in The New Orleans Convention Center. It was for a small emerging maritime safety consulting company at The Work Boat Trade Show. The WBTS is a huge show taking up the entire convention center. Displays included ship engines, polished propellers standing ten feet tall and magnificent booths installed by large companies that were a hundred feet long. How could a little guy starting out compete with this? And alongside booths featuring free drinks, expensive giveaways and scantily clad models? He can’t, unless he has a world-class sand sculptor in his booth telling tales of the sea… in sand!
And finally we have a small logo sculpture done for guess where? : On a rooftop lounge in New York City for a media event. (Ohh that turtle was pesky thing!)
