Sculptures are always amazing, but when the artist uses a medium that won't last I am awed by the care they give to an impermanent work of art.
No medium seems too far fetched for the sculptor. Pictures of sculptures made of sand, vegetables, pumpkins, bales of hay and others appear in our e-mails with regularity. When I get photos of these I wonder how the artists must feel when their sculpture disintegrates or melts away. So much effort is put into thedetails and I think it would break my heart to see it vanish before my eyes.
Many of you have probably seen ice sculptures at banquets or weddings, but they are usually something simple like a Swan. Thank goodness for the camera that enables these works of art to be shared and preserved for future viewing.
