Artist's Description

Image courtesy of Elspeth Killin, edited by myself.

Elspeth took this picture for me, showing the result of my experiments by the waterwheel at Craigencalt Farm, in the early months of 2009.

I’m a volunteer at the Ecology Centre sited there. While the waterwheel was out of action, motionless for a while awaiting repair, I’d set out to grow some icicles.

I had redirected the pipe – which normally feeds the waterwheel – so as to spray and trickle water onto the metal frame and grass nearby, and also over branches I had set in place for that purpose – using hollow plant stems to channel the flow.
I aimed to get a steady drip or moderate spray on each area, a wetting light enough to quickly freeze and then progressively build up.

When the hoped-for cold weather came, this preparation paid off in these icicle formations.
