Here are more of the single ice sculptures done by the carvers, who come from all around the world, in Confederation Park. Before Winterlude is done, odds are there will be fresh sculptures placed here; it's a good idea to let crowds on the second and third weekends watch the process of ice carving. While I was here, I also took shots of the carvers getting to work on their larger sculptures, and will be showing you some of their early progress starting tomorrow.
This last sculpture is a larger one, set near one of the entrances into the park. It was already set up before Winterlude began, and looks quite formidable.
I'm glad you recorded these beauties so I can look from the warmth of my home.ReplyDelete
Just viewed the last few blogs there are.e some wonderful isc sculpture there and some fun showmen. Well done recording themReplyDelete
Intriguing variety of ice sculptures. Love the bike featured in ice.ReplyDelete
Much and good art that is exhibited in the park.ReplyDelete
Oh my! Wonderful art work.ReplyDelete
I would like that last sculpture, the formidable one, in my yard. The temp has dropped to 27, so it might actually last... for now.ReplyDelete
That last one is stunning!ReplyDelete
Obras primorosas e surpreendentes.ReplyDelete
Um designer excepcional destas peças
love the skull one ... neat design! ( ;ReplyDelete
@Bill: thank you.
@Gemma: as do I.
@Andy: I agree.
@Janis: it's quite cold here, so these are doing fine.
@Marleen: yes it is.
@Gracita: thank you.
@Beth: it is neat.
Oh yes the last one here is pretty fabulous William.. the details are quite complex. Artists are incroyable aren't they, all that work .. and then it melts ☺ReplyDelete
Wonderful creations, and so delicate.ReplyDelete
These sculptures are so intricate and detailed. I'd think that the sculptors must take particular care to get everything right. That's hard enough to do in a studio or some other warm spot. Can't imagine doing it out in the brittle cold of an Ottawa winter! Yikes!ReplyDelete
That first one is amazing.ReplyDelete
YAY!!! Ice sculptures are back!!! Love them all. I specially like the big bird in you previous post.ReplyDelete
@Grace: in this case, they're broken down before they can melt.ReplyDelete
@Jan: they're such a delight to see.
@Lowell: just one mistake can ruin the work.
@Sharon: I agree!
@MB: I love showing them.
The last one is very pretty. Another great day for the ice sculptures.ReplyDelete
That bike is pretty cool.ReplyDelete
How gorgeous, William! I am really enjoying your celebration of our favourite season, the winter! Thank you so much for sharing. :)ReplyDelete
Klasse diese Skulpturen aus Eis.ReplyDelete
The blue skies make me wonder how long the sculptures can stand up. Beautiful artistry though.ReplyDelete
@Bill: it was a good day!ReplyDelete
@Whisk: it is, yes.
@RedPat: as am I.
@Linda: you're welcome!
@Noke: thank you!
@Catalyst: as long as the temperatures stay below freezing, they stay okay. Sunlight can have the effect on these ones, since they're out in the open- they end up taking on more of an opaque look as time goes on.
Looks like an interesting exhibit.ReplyDelete
That would be me on the bike. Brr!ReplyDelete
Awesome , particularly the last one. No color this year?ReplyDelete
Loved the mermaid and the last one. True artistry in ice.ReplyDelete
Amazing work! And the artist names are indeed very international!ReplyDelete
Beautiful ice sculptures! The carvers are so talented!ReplyDelete
Very impressive work.ReplyDelete
The ice sculptures are always so beautiful there.ReplyDelete
@Eve: it is!ReplyDelete
@Revrunner: very chilly riding.
@Red: I haven't photographed them yet with the lights, but I will before I'm done.
@Kay: we've got some of the usual suspects in terms of nations- Canada, America, Russia, Japan- and some unusual ones- Malaysia and Venezuela are represented as well, if I've got my countries right.
@Nancy: they really are.
@Orvokki: that they are.
Thank you so much for taking photos! We're grandie sitting this weekend. Having a blast!ReplyDelete
They're all so beautiful!ReplyDelete
That they are.Delete
Wow. To repeat . . . wow.ReplyDelete
