MIDWAY, Utah — Kohler Creamery in Midway hosted its Local Ice Sculptures Exhibition, featuring ice sculptures by local artist Darron Kingston, who was on hand Saturday putting on a demonstration.
Kingston got his start using an iron to polish his dad’s ice sculptures, and has been fascinated by art since he was only eight.
He said sculpting ice is a unique form of art, and even requires a special technique to ensure the ice is clear.
“We freeze it in a bin, we circulate as it freezes up, you get 10 inches of clear, that much white, cut off the white, you’ve got a clear block,” said Kingston.
Kingston also pours water over his sculptures to make sure they’re as clear as possible.
While the exhibition wraps up on Saturday, Heber Valley Artisan Cheese said most of the sculptures will likely remain up for a couple of weeks.
