The latest news for our fledgling company is that we have decided to create an overarching brand name that will encompass all things icy that come out of our studio. The new name is "WINTERCRAFT" - an old style name that does justice to this ancient art form. But, we have modernized and simplified the concept with a few tweaks: nice, thick ice lantern balloons so you can make them REALLY big if you like; freezing bases to help shape, protect and store the globe ice lantern; handy little clips that make life wonderful again because you don't have to worry about tying those really thick balloons; and finally the concept of bringing them inside to enjoy all night long. All these ideas are explained on the instruction card found in the kit!
This beautiful accompanying photo of one of my globe ice lanterns was taken by Natasha D'Schommer at the 2010 Luminary Loppet on Lake of the Isles . www.natashadschommer.com
