Ice Sculpting

This art may be either a little late or a little early. That totally depends on how you look at it. It may be too late, since this winter is over and too early for the winter to come. Either way, it is an art form that should not be overlooked by any means.

From what I could find, apparently ice sculpting is taught in culinary schools, because many hotels and restaurants like to have and order a sculpture for table decorations.

These decorations are much smaller then some of the wonderful creations one can see at the outdoor festivals and competitions. Those are held all around the world and artists can even participate in World Championships.

Several ice sculpting foundations and associations have been the result of all this beautiful, temporary, but extremely artistic work.

If you would like to try this then I think it would be wise to start out on a small scale. Maybe you can try fusing some ice cubes together and carve an image. If that goes well and you enjoy being crafty with ice, you can move on to the backyard and try it on a block of ice.

Be warned though: you may get cold feet! :-)
