Many contemporary artists have used ice as a sculptural material. Some fascinating examples can be found in a 2013 article by Leigh Patterson in the Atlantic, "Melting Masterpieces: Impressive Works of Art Made from Snow and Ice" In addition the sculptor Andy Goldsworthy, has made many remarkable site-specific sculptures from ice. Images of his work can be found in the Andy Goldsworthy Digital Catalogue.
More traditional painters have also been inspired by ice.
In these cold days of winter, it is interesting to see how artists' imaginations have been captivated by the beauty, mystery and treachery of ice. This post is part of the series related to the project, Ice Ornaments.
