Ice Carvers

Posted by Picasa
The Winter Carnival takes place in St. Paul each January. Sculptors wielding chain saws and chisels transform rough blocks of ice into castles, mythical creatures or thrones worthy of an ice princess. As they sculpt and polish the ice, the light flowing though it casts a magical glow. We all must find our medium. Some of us work in watercolors, clay or fabric. Others choose ice.
