Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
I would enjoy watching them create.
I think I'd enjoy trying my hand at this!
Ah now I can understand it a little more, I may well be tempted if it gets cold enough over here..
Always nice to see an artist at work.
It's always nice to watch the artist at his working.Lovely photos.
I would love to watch them at work. It would also be fun to try them out myself.
@Denise: I did!@Nathalie: i think it would be beyond me.@Geoff: it would have to stay cold!@Mariaanne: it is, yes.@Orvokki: thanks!
It looks like you and the local carvers will surprise us with great creations tomorrow. ;-)
Oh me too! I would love to have a try at ice sculpting. Was it possible for anyone to chip away William?
What a fun! I'd love to watch the process carvers create their sculptures! Looking forward to seeing the finished work :-)
So looking forward to seeing the finished product of all those ice carvings, excellent captures.
Very interesting to see the process and the tools.JanisGDP
Interesting to see the tools they use. Quite similar to a regular sculptor's tools!
It would be fascinating to watch these people at work!
That is cold work!
The carvers look very concentrated, they didn't even see you...
I like how they look at the ice as if there's something in the ice. and there is something in the ice which they will bring out. You caught that in your photos.
@Nancy: I'd probably cut myself!@Jan: I did like the result.@Grace: I have no idea what the process was for getting involved with this.@Tamago: more to come!@Marie: thanks!@Janis: the tools interest me too, and one's quite close to their work tables, so it was easy to photograph.@Halcyon: pretty much the same.@Norma: it was!@Sharon: they're well dressed for it.@Karl: they were invested in what they were doing.@Red: I quite agree!
Love that little cast in the first shot!
So interesting to see them at work!
That would be fascinating to watch.
Great! I would really like to watch this!
That would be fun to try making something. Good learning experience.
i love all the colors on the ice pants or do they call them snow pants. i love fancy outfits. way cool. happy weekend! i am enjoying all your funny comics/cartoons on FB. keep them up. ha . ha!! i am glad you are enjoying our political woes here in the states. at least we are good for something, right??! ( :
@Ciel: I did too.@Marleen: it is a good deal of fun.@Janey: I found it to be, yes.@VP: it's a pleasure to show it done.@Bill: it is a good learning experience!@Beth: I've always referred to them as snow pants. And if Herr Trumpenfuhrer gets in, I expect lots of Yankees coming north looking for sanctuary!
It looks like they were all given some kind of safety chaps to wear!Peter Pan is in the park on the northwest corner of St Clair & Avenue Road.
Brr!! Come on summer.
I have never seen ice sculptures in real life - probably because I live in hot, dry inland Australia! Would have been incredible to see I would imagine.
And we know that cold fingers are less dextrous
It looks too cold for my frost bitten fingers.
@RedPat: thanks for the tip!@Revrunner: I will have winter pics for the bulk of the month.@Country Mum: these wouldn't last long there.@Cloudia: oh yes!@Mari: right now I have cracks in the skin of a thumb... one reaction to the cold I don't like!
I always have cold hands in winter weather and just watching these artists made me shiver...spring anyone?
Spring is overrated!
I can't imagine staying warm enough to do a sculpture like this no matter how much high tech layers one can wear. I don't see their hands but I can't imagine anyone can wear warm enough gloves and still wield tools.
They probably also use hand warmers in their gloves.
I see that they don't use fire to make the ice supltures as chinesse man that you post previosly.
Not these ones.
Interesting thing to do.
They all seemed to be relaxed with an audience. And wearing gloves to use the tools is an experience at first but they have all nailed the method. Brrrrrrrrrrr
