Nick Smith

Nick spent a year in art college and two years as a tattoo artist before making an unexpected leap into ice sculpture.

After a bout of heavy snow, Nick decided to make a Buzz Lightyear snowman for his son. The image went viral and the team at Hamiltons invited him to the studio to help out for a few days. The rest is history.

Nick’s speciality is the human form. He loves inventing monsters and sculpting fantastical creatures and his largest ever creation was a 9m long dragon made from over 30 tonnes of snow.
