Flying Ice Rays - from 2004 International Ice Carving Championships, Fairbanks, Alaska

Another Award Winning Photo - earned 1st Place in the "Ice Carving Black and White" division at the 2004 Alaska State Fair. This is not your average shot with the colors desaturated on a computer - it was taken moments after completion by the artists when only white lights are allowed on the art work, and, just before the judges arrived. Shot on 12 March 2004 when the temps were near -43F.


2004 "Bone Chilling Discovery"

Life sized velociraptor skeleton from the single block 2004 International Ice Carving Competition held in Fairbanks, Alaska. An ice carving by a USA team completed in 2 1/2 days. Picture taken the night of 12 March 04.


Combat Medic - Bassett Army Hospital, Ft. Wainwright, Alaska

A life sized sculpture created at the main entrance to the Bassett Army Hospital, Ft. Wainwright near Fairbanks, Alaska. Carved in late January 2004 by the renown local ice artist Vladimir, the work was completely destroyed by a freak warm spell days after finishing. This is possibly the only professional quality picture of the well liked and emotional exhibit.


Michelanglo's Creation of Adam in Ice #1 - 2004 IICC Fairbanks, Alaska

Wonderful ice rendition of the great painting - taken just minutes after completion and before judging under the white construction lighting. The day following completion a partial warming spell destroyed small details and parts of the exhibit. One of several pictures of this carving I will post.
