Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
It is the detail on the sculptures which impresses me the most.
I like the bunny and the owl most of all. Keep the creativity going!
The ice sculptures are exquisite - do you still have snow? or has spring arrived now.
The detail is incredible on some of these!

...deep freeze art!
The owl is a true beauty.
Hello, great ice sculptures. I love the owls! Happy weekend!
So many owls! Was there a theme?I love these. So happy you posted them.
@Fun60: they were well done.@Lowell: still some more to come.@Rosemary: spring remains elusive. Clear skies today, but we had three days of snow.@Marie: that's true.@Francisco: thanks!@Tom: emphasis on freeze.@Jan: it is indeed.@Eileen: thank you.@Jennifer: not really a theme- just that artists went that way.
Love the bunny, flower in ice and the owl!
That owl is nicely done.
the final two were nicely done especially, William
All very creative ice sculptures ~ delightful photography ~ Happy Weekend to you,A ShutterBug Exploresaka (A Creative Harbor)
Some of these have some very intricate detail.
Lovely. They are very detailed.
@Nancy: it's the owl that particularly captivated me. The owl and flower were the pair being worked on by the two carvers in yesterday's post.@Sharon: it certainly is.@Cloudia: I agree.@Carol: thanks!@Red: they do indeed.@Marleen: that they are.
Beautifully done! I love the owl, what great detail and beauty.
Hi William, I appreciate your comment on my blog after my very long blog break. These ice sculptures are amazing. Here in Georgia, I often see sculptures made with tree trunks (since our climate is warm). I do remember visiting the historical Swan House in Atlanta, GA one spring and there was an ice swan sculpture on the dining table - beautiful! I wish you a lovely weekend. Mildred
These ones are obviously done more quickly that the large ones but they are sweet!
Wonderful 'ice critters' and photos! Happy Weekend to you,A ShutterBug Explores,aka (A Creative Harbor)
neat an owl, a snowflake and love the critter with the heart in the middle. cute!! ( ;
The ice sculptures are totally captivating.
There are really lovely ice sculptures.
Keep up the good work.
They're holding up well William.. the owl is definitely a favourite!
That last owl is my fave but all impressive works!
The demonstrations must be fun to watch...a block of ice becoming art.
They all look so good, but I especially like the owl.All the best Jan
The flower and the owl are my favourite.
@Bill: it was marvelously done.@Mildred: I've watched carvers here work with wood. Some of the tools are the same, but in terms of chainsaws used on ice, they have to be modified, and then can never be used for anything else but ice carving.@RedPat: they probably take about an hour to finish a single block sculpture.@Carol: thank you!@Beth: thanks!@Mari: they are indeed.@Orvokki: it's amazing to see.@Rockinon: thank you.@Grace: I assumed people would go for that.@Jenn: they certainly were.@Jan: many of my readers did.@Klara: they're a good pair.
