Think that building sand castles is relegated to kids with plastic buckets and shovels?
One couple has taken sand sculpting to dramatic new heights in a career that has spanned the globe.
Briton Paul Hoggard and his Dutch wife, Remy, say they create elaborate sculptures using little more than common tools, sand, water, and their bare hands.
This Ferrari race car is among the Hoggards’ sand masterpieces.
“I love to make sand sculptures with my wife … we are in our element when we work together,” Paul Hoggard told FoxNews.com. “We both love to travel, meet people, and experience other cultures.”
The couple has created thousands of pieces, and their awe-inspiring designs have been featured in countries like Greece, Holland, Kuwait, Iran, Bahrain, Denmark, South Korea, and France. Right now, their work can be seen in Denmark, where the Hoggards have 15 giant-themed sand sculptures on display until September.
Hoggard spoke with us about his sand-sculpting process and gave us some insider tips on how to create your own sand sculpture.
