From the heat of his bakery oven to the chill of carving up a block of ice with a chainsaw, David Lorenzo appears to be a man of many talents.
Mr Lorenzo said that he came up with the ice carving idea after seeing an ice carving in a James Bond movie.
“It triggered a memory of having done ice carving 20-25 years ago,” he said.
“I thought that it was probably something that had not been seen in the Clarence before and thought that creating an ice carving would be something positive for South Grafton.”
Mr Lorenzo purchased the 110kg block of ice from Sydney and had it freighted up to Grafton and then housed in the freezer at the Clarence River Fishermen’s Co-Op in Maclean, free of charge.
It definitely drew a large crowd of on lookers as the large block was lifted into place with a fork lift from Farmer Lous.
Mr Lorenzo spent just under an hour to create the ice carving using a small chainsaw to finally create an Angel fish going through
reeds.
