Ice sculpture

Ice sculpture is a form of sculpture that uses ice as the raw material. Sculptures from ice can be abstract or realistic and can be functional or purely decorative. Ice sculptures are generally associated with special or extravagant events because of their limited lifetime.

The lifetime of a sculpture is determined primarily by the temperature of its environment and thus, a sculpture can last from mere minutes to possibly months. There are several ice festival held around the world, hosting competitions of ice sculpture carving.

Amazing sand sculpture by Carl Jara, titled “What Lies Beneath”.

What Lies Beneath Sand Sculpture

Sand art is the practice of modelling sand into an artistic form, such as a sand sculpture, sandpaintings, or sand bottles. A sand castle is a type of sand sculpture resembling a miniature buildings, often a castle.

The two basic building ingredients, sand and water, are available in abundance on a sandy beach, so most sand play takes place there, or in a sandtip. Tidal beaches generally have sand that limits height and structure because of the shape of the sand grains. Good sand sculpture sand is somewhat dirty, having silt and clay that helps lock the irregular shaped sand grains together.

Coffe Kiss Sculpture by Tsang Cheung-shing

11 Giu
The pottery, named Yuanyang II, is one of the collections of Hong Kong Museum of Art now displaying at the Central Concourse of Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA). It is produced by Tsang Cheung-shing, a ceramic art tutor and product designer.
Yuanyang II is modeled in a distinctive form with two figures indulged in kissing each other. Their heads support two elegant cups for drinking tea and coffee. The form and concept design fully complement the theme “Yuanyang” (a typical Hong Kong beverage of mixing tea and coffee), a symbol of marriage and love, with a touch of humour for artistic creation. The pottery, named Yuanyang II, is one of the collections of Hong Kong Museum of Art now displaying at the Central Concourse of Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).

Artistic Shadows with Trash

Dirty White Trash (1998)

Tim Noble and Sue Webster - Dirty White Trash

Among the works that have contributed to their celebrity there are series of sculptures made from mounds of garbage piled up seemingly at random but that once turned a spotlight on a specific point, by disclosing the shadow of their precise images.
Tim noble e Susan Webster are two young British artists who make art at ease, absolutely free to mix together the sacred and profane, high and low. In this sense it is profoundly pop and postmodern art. Borrow under appropriate language of advertising time from now to that of the classical arts, often both at once.
