An artist in Schreiber Ont., who is well known for creating unique pieces of art in the snow, has taken to a new medium this winter.
Kim Asmussen has started to craft sculptures out of ice blocks and has been placing the final pieces around his hometown.
“Last year I took a crack at [sculpting] a baby grand piano and it was a live and learn procedure … I ended up finally making it through trial and error. So, I wanted to look at it a bit more in depth this year so, I did more researching on how to build the clear blocks,” explained Asmussen in an interview with CBC Radio.
