Frost and Flames

Saturday, January 12, 2019 at 11 AM – 4 PM

Grounds For Sculpture
80 Sculptors Way, Hamilton, NJ 08619

The Seward Johnson Atelier and Grounds For Sculpture are joining forces to make the already popular Frost & Flames event at Grounds For Sculpture one to remember. Four ice carving artists are at different locations within the grounds with two large blocks of ice to carve over the course of the event. Watch as The Seward Johnson Atelier fires up the furnace to pour molten metal to create one-of-a-kind art objects. You are welcome to gather, watch the carvers and Atelier artists, and converse with them as to their technique. Later in the day, catch a unique pop-up performance by one of the early evening’s strolling flame dancers.

International Sculpture Day

Let’s give a hand to the student’s from Hopewell NJ’s Bear Tavern Elementary School, who visited The Seward Johnson Atelier on April 28, 2018 to participate in International Sculpture Day.  The students viewed demonstrations by some of the Atelier’s sculptors, and then tried their own hands at creating scratch mold designs.  Check out images from the day’s visit and presentation, as well as the students with their finished artwork.  Bravo!
