When I again returned to snow-work at a later stage, I was spellbound by the material. Perhaps the childhood memories of making snow castles, digging long caves and creating playful spaces contribute to the enjoyable feeling of working with snow. In any case, there is something quite special about the smells; the touch of the cold material; being in the outdoors; the physical work while at the same time being able to create something beautiful and exciting. I cannot escape the fact that I am a winter being.

SNØSKULPTUR HOVDEN 2011
The inspiration here is the arms of the octopus. I chose to skew the shape a bit, and to blend in ice to emphasize exciting details: one of the arms are made of only ice. The three remaining arms are made of snow with details of ice all the way up.
Skulpturen er 6 m høy og D:/B:3×3 m
