Marieke ijssculptuur

ice sculptures (and snow)

In 2008 I met ice, in huge, clear, cripsy blocks.

 

As a sand sculptor it is somehow a logical step to start working with ice (and snow) as well. As sand, it is a fast material, you're carving and it has a relatively short period of existence.

 

Cold, yes. Still, while working hard in -6 till -30 degrees, I catch myself taking off layers of clothes. It is a great job! Fysically challenging, but with bad-ass tools. Chainsaws, grinders, chisels. 

 

After a workday, I often fall asleep before the sun sets. In a warm bed with frozen toes.
