Very interesting. I live in the Caribbean and think some sand sculpture here would be wonderful at Festival. But the beaches are narrow and our winds can be fierce, I don't think a sculpture would last more than a few days max.

I'm trying to find an artist to do a sand sculpture of a "Castle" for an upcoming photo shoot in Hawaii.

Is there anyone out there that knows of a reputable sculpturist located in the Hawaiian Islands - contact info?

Thanks for your help.

Every once in a while i would like to see a regular sand CASTLE! So if your sculpters are soooo good then why can't they just make a unique sand castle? Why not? I mean no offense but I personally am getting uninterested. I mean the sand sculpters are cool, but what ever happened to the old-fashioned sand castles? I mean haven't you ever wondered if maybe one day technology might take over our world? It's very very possible! Plus It's much harder to think of a cool and very interesting castle than ANYTHING else in the world!!! So just think about it!

Does anyone know who makes downscale premanant sandcastes for decoration for your home? The only one I've seen is on Amazon.com and I want something a little more fancier than that. We ahve the nautical theme in our home and I think a small sandcastle will be pretty, but I'm not sure how they would make it permanent.

Posted by: Tracey at Mar 11, 2007 5:51:57 AM

You can go to carmelcurios.com to get decorative sandcastles for your home and they have reasonable prices. They have anywhere from 2 inches high to 15 inches high. I got the one that was 15 inches tall and with shipping and taxes it cost me $61.00. It's made of real sand also! If you like sandcastles you should check them out. They are nice!
