Frozen Wonder

Today we start with more of the single block ice sculptures in Confederation Park.


These two were taken on the final weekend of Winterlude. Milder temperatures had rendered outdoor sculptures opaque.


I finish for today with two more looks at the Olympic themed sculptures. Tomorrow we head over to the solo and pairs competitive sculptures to see them by night.

  1. The thing that strikes me is that there's not any room for error when working with a large single block of ice. If you screw up, you're done and have to start over with a new block of ice. So, that makes these sculptures even more impressive!
