Chef Bane Ice Carving on Mass Ave

Last Friday night (December 5th), Chef Bane was down on Mass Ave creating Ice carvings for a few of the local businesses during their Mass Ave Holiday Hoopla event. Chef Bane carved a reindeer, a wreath, and a Centaur. The Centaur was a two block piece and it stood approximately 5 feet tall. It was a good time watching and it was perfect weather for ice work. It was a balmy 20 degrees outside and the Chatterbox was nice enough to provide some cinnamon coffee to warm up our bones. Chef Bane worked on the sculptures for approximately 6 hours all together and a lot of people admired his work in progress and also the finished sculptures. People were walking by all night and had a lot of questions for Chef Bane, but mostly you could see amazement in their eyes. From watching his chainsaw skills to the astonishment of his aluminum welding to fuse the blocks together, Chef Bane proved to be a pure showman in his element. We would like to thank everyone who came out to see Chef Bane at work and wish everyone the best of the holidays.
