  • Ice festival

    Just had these pics forwarded to me in my email. I think they are incredible - taken at the Ice festival in Fairbanks, Alaska.

    WOW, that even looks cold!!

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

        I'm going to go one better and say double wow. Those are incredible. I think Fairbanks has to be one inhospitable place. I understand in the winter you can actually hear the ice freeze harder. In the summer it can get to 100 degrees F. And I thought Minnesota had extremes.

        Thank you very much for sharing those photos. Alaska has always intrigued me.

          Mike - or anyone else who might be interested - there are some more pics here http://www.icealaska.com/sculptures.html - pre-2001 links appear not to work though.

          The festival is held in March - I guess it's probably quite cool there then . Those sculptures must be even more awesome in real life though - I'd love to visit.

            Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

            Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

            Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

            My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
            I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
            Was it a good idea.....?...

            Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

            The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
