New Amazing Geometric Sand Castles from Calvin Seibert


New York-based artist and sand castle genius Calvin Seibert, who we introduced to you last year, is back with more amazingly intricate geometric forms sculpted with sand. He starts with a vague notion of building something different each time, then follows his imagination and lets the sandy form emerge naturally. The results are fantastic shapes that look like they’re from another world, featuring sprawling plains, industrial complexes, geometric blocks, sharp angles, honeycombed walls, or smooth curves.

Using just his hands and a plastic spackling tool, Seibert carefully molds the delicate sand into sculptures that take hours or even days to complete. When asked about his method and what he uses to keep the sand together, Seibert replied, “Water is all you need with sand. Careful packing of the surfaces and lot’s of experience with how to handle those edges is really all it is.”

Although building the forms is a bit of a test because “nature will always be against you and time is always running out,” Seibert enjoys the challenge. According to him, the best part is letting the forms grow as “organic machines” whose continual expansion is halted only by time constraints or the force of a wave washing over them.
