Ice Dragon

This unique piece of work was produced by RedHot in the Dubai workshop for the childrens play area at Ski Dubai. Designed to simulate a frozen dragon made of ice we used a clear urethane resin for the finished effect. At a height of 3 metres the main body was cast in one single pour and the wings were cast individually and molded together. The overall weight of the finished piece was over 3 ton requiring steel and concrete structured support. Stalagmites from the same material were produced and surrounded the dragon. Real snow with mood lighting was added to finish off the overall effect. We worked on the design with the concept company Thinkwell. Models were produced beforehand for initial client approval.
