One Hour Carvings

Around the Colonel By Fountain in the park, a series of sculptures were done on the first weekend by the sculptors, single block sculptures done in an hour. I have more of these over the next two days.

    @Nancy: they did great work.

    @Furry Gnome: they must plan in advance.

    @Beth: I haven't spoken to any of them, actually! I'd rather let them do their job.

    @Sharon: it's beyond me.

  15. The artist must have in his mind what he's going to do if he's going to do this in one hour. the detail is amazing.

  16. I do love ice sculptures, I remember seeing a whole festival in Germany a few years ago. The cold played havoc with my camera batteries.

  28. That's a lot of amazing art to create in an hour! But considering how cold it is, and how cold the medium is, I suppose speed is not a bad idea.
