Picking up where I left off, this is the chair I showed you in my last shot yesterday. The Connaught Building and the colourful York Steps are in the background.
During Winterlude, this area had a rotating set of smaller sculptures leading into the main sculpture area. Here were some of them.
Elsewhere in town, about midway through Winterlude, I noticed an assortment of smaller ice sculptures set up along Bank Street. I'll show more of them tomorrow, but start here.
...what wonderful imaginations these artists have.ReplyDelete
The sculptors are really good in producing these beautiful sculptures.ReplyDelete
All these beautiful sculptures will melt, what a pity but the photos will remain at leastReplyDelete
Extraordinary! How do they do it??ReplyDelete

They ARE fun William, love the unicorn ✨ReplyDelete
It would be neat to have an ice sculpture in the yard all winter. They are quite a treat. Thank you for showing the picturesReplyDelete
Some how there's a genius behind the ice sculptures in Ottawa. They always come up with something new like the small sculptures.ReplyDelete
I may have missed it...but are all of these ice artists Canadian?ReplyDelete
The small sculptures look harder to do!ReplyDelete
They are so beautiful and detailed! Love the bird!ReplyDelete
Just incredible beauty. And you have captured them for all time. Thank you! :-)ReplyDelete
They truly are amazing!!ReplyDelete
@Nancy: that they are.
@Sami: I certainly agree.
@Gattina: that's true.
@Sandi: lots of practice.
@Eileen: thank you!
@Sharon: and more to come.
@Grace: so do I.
@Maywyn: you're welcome.
@Red: there's no shortage of new ice sculpture ideas.
@Red: I suspect that most of these were done by local carvers. The bigger ones are an international blend, including three Canadians this year.
@Marie: there's less room for compensating for an error with one or two blocks.
@Noke: thank you.
