Carvers create art from snow and ice

Over 50 years of creating art in the cold and Jeffrey Olson says he has never repeated a design. It’s not like Olson gets to work once in a blue moon either. Fire and Ice was his third exhibition this year. He has been carving snow since 1968 when he was at UW-Superior where he got hooked on the activity as an art student. Olson has been a professional since 1992 and has played a part in snow carving displays across the area.


Olson worked with snow on Friday and turned to several ice sculptures on Saturday. He carves any of the blocks not spoken for around town. When asked which he prefers, Olson responded that snow is his favorite.
