Many years in the making, this new book by Jennifer Shea Hedberg, the Ice Wrangler, is filled with projects for you to make yourself. Read more about it here. Size: 8"x10", 224 full color pages, soft cover.
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!
The book arrived timely at our house. I have briefly looked over the pages one evening. Hoping to use during the upcoming month of December. I see Jennifer will have her stunning ice luminaries at the ARB Nov. 19-Jan. 3. arboretum.umn.edu for info. thinking I shall go.......
Looking forward to the cold months so we can try out some of the many great luminary ideas in here. Well illustrated projects.
Genius designs and lots of fun!
I have made a lot of ice lanterns in MN and highly recommend this book as I see the amount of Jennifer’s expertise and experience that has gone into it. There is as much or as little to learn about ice lanterns as you want to, but even simple ones can bring a beautiful peacefulness. Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm, Jennifer!
Great book of projects
