TABLETOP SAND SCULPTURES
TABLE TOP

     Here you will see examples of sand castles rendered from just a half of ton of sand or less.
  Visually, a half ton of raw sand represents a cube about 1.5 to 2 feet on a side. But, since a pile of sand does not usually fall out in a perfect cube, and is generally more of a conical or irregularly mounded shape, you may envision a good sized two or three-load, knee high pile of laundry generated by the average college student. The rough size and shape is about like that... But, sand smells a whole lot better.
  If the sand quality is high, and the design calls for it, the castles can be considerably higher than the raw pile -often three feet or taller from the base. When the sculptures are also created on an elevated platform, the results can be dramatic if not striking, especially when you consider just how small a volume of sand is actually used. One ton of raw sand can be moved into a venue in just one or two trips of a pallet jack, or by other types of flatbed dolly devices in 10 (ten), 5-gallon buckets.
Sand Sculpture has a universal appeal that spans all demographics
  These Petite Sand Sculptures are ideal for events where setup or sculpting time is limited. Also, because they can be created on an elevated (or not) standard 2x6 foot  or a 3 foot round banquet table, you still get a lot of bang for your entertainment buck when and where space is at a premium. With these smaller sculptures, there is less expense of materials cost, and consequently less involvement in terms of time and labor for installation and the eventual removal of the sand, than is the case with (more typical) bigger commissions. Thus, Tabletop Sand Sculptures are ideally suited for product launches, trade shows, conventions, theme parties, media hooks or anywhere you may want to stop foot traffic in order to pitch your product to a captive audience. Or, they are great for any application where you just want a really cool sand sculpture, but have a limited budget. This is especially the case if you are in marketing or public relations and have back to back multi-stop, tour engagements and want to grab some attention fast.
Tabletop Sand Sculptures are highly cost effective. 
  Besides the sand. - which can be readily obtained everywhere and is literally "dirt" cheap, everything needed to create such powerful and effective entertainment/advertising &  promotional masterpieces are easily transported on or in planes, trains & automobiles. The standard kit travels with the sculptor and it checks through as a single unit of standard baggage at any airport, and will fit in the trunk of a taxicab easily.
   Having Tabletop Sand Sculptures created as an "in-progress" performance art at your booth or venue enhances the "Draw-back" quality to your presentation. The captivating process of a master working this seemingly delicate medium into amazing art naturally entices audience members to return over and over to see the progress, allowing you to re-pitch your products, wares or services to them, again and again.
 
   For the work shown below, which was for a private party, approximately 8-10 hours total time was required.  That is, from start (arrival of the sand at the venue) to finish (the completed sculpture, cleanup, and departure of the sculptor).The last few hours were intentionally during the party as an entertainment feature. It was located indoors, in a meeting room eight stories up in a hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.
  It should be noted that the castle shown here is comparatively a more highly detailed sculpture, which would necessarily take longer to create than would other themes or subjects that are perhaps broad and smooth such as dolphins jumping in the waves, or possibly your own product line, or even just your corporate logo. So, if you are sidled with a time crunch, and can be flexible on what exactly the designs being rendered in the sand are, we can still provide an amazing piece to fit the time budget.
Conversely, if double the work time is allocated, a proportionately more elaborate design may also be created.

      We absolutely are in the business of providing large scale sand sculptures as well. In fact, Big sand sculptures and sand sculpture events per se, are one of our our benchmark products, but in today's world of soaring fuel prices, which trickles down to inflated materials and shipping costs, Tabletop Sand Sculptures may be the answer to your promotional or marketing needs.
