The ice pieces just keep on developing which does make me happy! There is so much more to discover with this work and with every making and producing of a piece i discover some new phenomena in which i can harness. Shown here in the images above is a small insight into work produced over the past couple of months. Particular detail has been taken in the development of purposely manipulated surfaces to enable the forming of textures which become visible when the ice sculptures are brought out of freezing temperatures. A rime of frost forms on the surface of the pieces when they hit room temperature creating a beautiful delicate and short lived coating. Other exploration into creating and refining more spherical moon and planetary like forms have also been of particular further development.
Carefully observing the way in which the ice forms rapidly change and transform while interchanging environments, the capture of these changes through photography is swift. Each of these pieces are extremely unique and after full melt they no longer exist; they are extinct and it is only through photography that their presence remains.
