Winter Blues…and red and orange and yellow and green and purple…and white and shadows

Just in case the dark, cold and snowy winter days are getting you down, these two constructive and aesthetically pleasing winter design projects by engineering student Daniel Gray and artist Simon Beck might inspire some creative activity in the snowy outdoors. (Speaking from Vermont where we just received over two feet of snow.)

Daniel Gray used milk cartons as molds to make colored ice blocks to construct a rainbow igloo. The blocks were stuck together with “snowcrete” – a mixture of snow and water.


Simon Beck used snow as a medium to carve intricate designs in a massive snowy field.
