Between February and March of 2003, I took about 1,500 photographs of ice forms. The forms were made by pouring water into household objects like bowls, vases, and balloons, and then freezing or partially freezing them in the fridge.

For lighting, I generally kept the room pitch black and used only a flashlight to illuminate the ice.

The photos were taken with a Canon Powershot S45. To get the close-up shots, I placed off-the-shelf magnifying glasses directly up to the lens of the camera.
