vid:Icicle Sculpture

~ ~ ~

As a sculptor I often find myself completely awed by nature,

and living a mile-and-a-half in the sky merely adds to the wonder.

~ ~ ~

Take ice for example,

water up here in the Rockies simply refuses to act like any water I have have ever witnessed before;

ice doesn’t merely melt, it evaporates,

the air being so dry, so very cold… the water is literally vaporized,

leaving behind a phantasmagorical sculptural form that would seem to defy the very laws of gravity itself.

~ ~ ~

So pity me, a poor earthly sculptor who, having labored long and hard in the workshop,

steps outside for a quick breather,

only to be confronted by the sort of death defying natural phenomenon to which I can only dare to dream of ever carving.
