I had the distinct pleasure
earlier this week of meeting
with Master Sand Sculptor,
Jill Harris, at my favorite
Starbucks. I had recently
discovered the amazing
creations by Jill and her
partner, World Champion
sand sculptor, Thomas

One of Sandsational's slogans is, 'When you want WOW!' And to be quite honest, I can't think of a better or more accurate pitch. I was immediately in awe of their incredible artistry, and since this creative team  is based in my hometown of Melbourne, Florida, my journalist instincts led me to set up a face-to-face interview with Ms. Harris.

Although Harris and Koet travel the world year 'round creating their unique art, one of the more exciting events currently on their schedule is the upcoming Art of Sand International Sand Sculpting Festival being held next month here in Melbourne at the Space Coast Stadium. The Art of Sand is a sand sculpting exhibition featuring the work of 17 international Master Sand Sculptors. I'm looking forward  to witnessing first-hand what these renowned artists will create with over 1,000 tons of sand. The festival will run from October 14 - 23 and is open to the public.

More behind-the-scenes details coming soon!
