Author Reflections: Ever since I successfully created my first sheet of Ice Glass, I became obsessed with experimenting with ice! I fell in love with this artistic medium that is fragile yet strong and sparkling yet dense. In a sense, Ice Luminary Magic is my opus. It is the aggregation of a lifetime of spraying, lugging, coloring, gluing, stretching, wiring and playing with ice.
In order to manipulate ice, it's helpful to understand the science that applies to ice luminary creation, so the first chapter is called Ice Logic. The basic shape tutorials comes next, followed by Display Logic. Then I lay out all the projects which fall under the headings: Changing the Shape, Applying Texture, Freezing Objects into Ice and Building Projects. And did I mention the photos? I have been lucky enough to have amazing photographers capture some of my ice installations, so the book is filled with beautiful images that hopefully will get your creative juices flowing.
Ice Luminary Magic will make a perfect corporate gift, hostess gift, birthday gift or a gift to yourself! I'm excited for you to see it!
Given the l-o-n-g winter we have experienced in Winnipeg this year, it feels surprising to me to declare how much I am looking forward to the season coming again! And this is due to the inspiration I feel having delved into the book “Ice Luminary Magic”. Thank you for describing the art and science so beautifully!
tremendous amount of detail we benefit from all your experience extremely well done
Who knew winter could be so much fun and so full of beauty? I loved Wintercraft’s ice globe kits, which I lit along my front walk to welcome visitors on dark winter nights and mingled with stone globes in the garden. But wow! Jennifer Hedberg’s Ice Luminary Magic book, with its gorgeous photographs and clear instructions, is really inspiring me to go outside and make some creative magic with fire and ice.
It's a beautiful book, with tons of easy-to-follow projects for family winter fun. The delivery was very prompt (the next day, I think!). I look forward to challenging myself with more of these breath-taking creations.
Can’t wait to start making some of these magical ice luminaries!
