Snow Day.

Why not take advantage of todays snow day and build something different.

Snowmen are ok. Snow angels are fun. And everybody loves a snowball fight. But take some inspiration from Hongtao Zhou.

Hongtao Zhou is a designer, artist and researcher working in the interdisciplinary areas of furniture design, sculptural installation and performance. Hongtao started his career in Harbin of China as a designer and sculptor. Hongtao is also a winner of the silver medal at the International Snow Sculpture Competition Quebec.

Amongst his works is the amazing snow sculpture ‘Lantern Pray’ which depicts a Jellyfish leaving lanterns in the ocean for South Asia Tsunami victims.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And Ice & Snow Furniture Raised From Lake Mendota. The icy furniture was created on frozen Lake Mendota near the UW-Madison Memorial Union Terrace shoreline. Visitors stops by taking pictures, eating ice cream with snow bowls and trying the cold ice chairs. The icy furniture makes the winter Terrace shoreline a place to enjoy winter fun.
