Simply put: I’m in awe of Reverend Butter of the DLG Ice Factory. In my opinion, no one can sculpt ice like this phenomenal rock star. And I don’t think I’m alone in my assessment. He was by far the best ice sculptor on TLC’s special episode, Chainsaw Ice Sculptors.

I first laid eyes on one of his sparkling pieces last year during our inaugural foodie event, Big Bite Nite. Our special events divas, Leslie and Nancy, asked him to do something big in honor of the occasion and as usual he didn’t disappoint. He sculpted our event logo.

When I saw it, I was in a hypnotic state for quite a while and could not take my eyes off of it. Finally, I came to myself and moved to my assigned post for the night. I never forgot him and looked for a motive to get up close and personal with him to find out how he sculpts the ice.

A reason for you to meet Reverend Butter:

Right now, we’re in the planning stages of our second culinary affair and we’re literally turning up the heat. As in spicy! And, we’re starting with Reverend Butter.

This year, he’s returning to do something big and “spicy” not only for us, but for you as well.

On the night of the event, April 29, fire meets ice. Butter will be live onsite with his chainsaw to sculpt ice in harmony with some of his favorite musical tunes beginning at 5pm.

Caution: if you can’t stand the heat…well, you know the rest. As a precaution for what you’re in “store for,” pump up the volume and take a peek at this super hot video below.

See why Butter believes the ice sculpting business is a growing industry but a dying art. And watch him hand-sculpt a beautiful piece—no software needed—just the use of a powerful tool that he refers to as the extension of his hand.
