Frozen Water as Art

December 18, 2010

 

I found this really great YouTube channel named Ice Carving Secrets and there are a lot of videos.  This fascinates me, the ice is so fragile in some ways, tough in others, and often the sculptures are big.  Special blocks of very clear ice are manufactured for the pieces.  I like to see any ice sculptures that pop up in Chicago.  Many ice sculpting professionals have large walk in freezers or can work on location in the winter.  Chain saws, stone chisels, Dremel tools, drills and more go into the carving.  The saddest part is that they will eventually melt, perhaps this pending doom draws people to them so strongly.
