Ice Flame at sunset by sculptin Ice Flame at sunset by sculptin
Ice sculpture carved for the Sherwood Park, Alberta New Years Eve festival. I didn't know what to carve. The sculpture was to be placed by a large campfire pit. Hence I carved a flame. It stands 9ft tall.

A flama made in ice... Interesting... Spiritual... :D Nice! Did you piece it together with separately carved chunks? The lines in the ice look as though you did, but it looks great, nonetheless! :D I love the setting as well.

This sculpture is made from 2 blocks of ice, that I cut into pieces, stacked, froze together, then carved out the shape.

At you delightful works, and very much nace gallery... I have received great pleasure from viewing..
To create from ice... O, my God, it is fine...
In it there is something from the Buddhism, I speak about fragility. To create and understand, that it will disappear... To know it, but to create...
Magnificent works....

Yes there is a buddist element to ice and snow sculpture. Do you know the Tibetan sand mandalas?, same theory, work very very hard to make something that will only last for a brief moment in time. Thank you for this wonderful comment.
