Ice Photo Studies

Striped Heart

Art brought camera equipment, including his new Nikon D-200, the world's most complicated camera. We have strobe lights and a bloac backgroud. In our freezer container, now named "Davy's Locker," we have set up a photo studio. Here are some of the pictures we have made with bergie bits found out in the water and pulled into the Zodiac, or Fished off the rocks with the nets.

Rock Ice

Ice Wing

Three views of Marfa

Two views of Light Fragment

Ice Cone

I have showed pictures of this piece before. I am intrigued with its shape, in that it has deep holes or impressions in the facets that minimize its actual thickness. Unfortunately, though it refracts the light well, we have found it difficult to show the actual shape. Good thing we are doing the molds.

I have followed your blog since I found it as a Blogger "blog of note" last month. I think it is so cool (sorry, overused adjective and climate-pun, but it fits) that you are able to have this adventure and study the ice in such an austere and beautiful place. This strikes me as something Leonardo da Vinci would have done if he'd had the chance. It would also make a great PBS documentary.

Thank you so much for sharing the experience, and I hope I get a chance to see your ice-inspired works in person someday.

Bergie bits? You could market that as a pet snack. Too funny.

What's not amusing is the thought of camping in freezing, windy temperatures. Crazy.

These pieces of ice are fascinating.

Dear David - are the images of Striped Heart, Rock Ice and Ice Wing of your glass castings or actual pieces of ice? they are so clear in some places!
