KAMAISHI SAND SCULPTURE FESTIVAL - KAMAISHI, JAPAN

Donnie DeWees has been an international professional sand sculptor for the last 32+ years. Seeing the ephemeral nature of sand sculpture as being the antithesis of architecture, he has helped propel the art form from its infancy in the early 1980’s to the international status that it has obtained now. Sand sculpting has taken Donnie to Kamaishi, Japan and to twenty different U.S. states.

Donnie has been an integral part of Archisand Professional Sand Sculptors with Greg LeBon for the last 25+ years. http://socalsandcastles.com/

“You borrow sand from the ocean for a short time, you make something wonderful from it, and then you return the sand to mother earth. It’s the most earth-friendly art form there is.”

-Donnie DeWees
