02.06.13 ice-cyclical

There are wonderful things happening lately when the sun shines. The sun’s warmth is enough to melt the icicles hanging off the eaves drip by drip. But it’s still cold enough to re-freeze the drips into new formations as they fall onto objects below encasing twigs and wires in sheaths of clear glass. These sculptural icicles remind me of the mirrored stalactites and stalagmites that form in limestone caves – some drips coalescing mid-air, others merging into towering pillars that rise up from the ground.
