These pictures were taken Friday night at Falls River Square. The sculptures started out as a block of ice. Saturday the sun was out and melted most of these. I learned quite a bit on Friday night about the different ways they make the shapes larger than what the block of ice originally are. For example, I watched the wings of the eagle being attached in layers. And what they did to adhear the layers was pour water over it to freeze the two pieces together.
These were students from University of Akron ranging in experience from just a few months to several years. The least experienced was the girl who is kneeling by her dragon. The most experienced is the woman standing by her dragon; she is the assistant.
I have pictures of Saturday and Sunday of the Festival that will come when I am done editing them.
