Here you will see several examples of sand castles rendered from just
a single ton of sand, (Petite sand sculptures) or less, (Tabletop
Visually, a ton of raw sand represents a cube shape about three
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,
envision a good sized two to four-load, thigh-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 four 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 on one of our flatbed dolly/ transport devices in 20
(twenty), 5-gallon buckets.
Sand Sculpture has a universal appeal
that spans all demographics
These sand sculptures are ideal for events
where setup or sculpting time is limited. Also, because they can be created
on an elevated (or not) 4x6 or smaller display 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, Petite & Tabletop
sand sculptures are ideally suited for weddings, 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.
Petite & Tabletop sand sculptures
are highly cost effective.
Besides the sand - which can be readily obtained everywhere
and is literally "dirt" cheap, and display table itself, 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 Petite & 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.
Time frames for setup is 2-4 hours depending
on conditions. Most works can be created in a day or even a half day depending
on the design. The art may remain intact indefinitely.
It should be noted that fantasy castle designs are highly detailed
works that may take longer to create than some other subjects. For
instance, if you are sidled with a time crunch, or simply desire a broader
and smoother sculpture which may not require as involved and/or meticulous
detail, such as designs like dolphins jumping in the waves or possibly
your own product line, or even just your corporate logo, much less time may
be needed to still yield an amazing piece. Conversely, if double the
work time is allocated, a proportionately more elaborate design may also
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, Petite & Tabletop Sand Sculptures
may be the answer to your promotional or marketing needs.
