Northern Nights with Patricia Leguen
Working on the edge of an ice-jammed lake with the wind blowing steadily on-shore is all in a day’s work for fire / snow / ice sculptor Patricia Leguen. On this chilly spring day, she and her local crew construct a massive wood and straw structure. Finally, around midnight in the dark calm, Leguen sets fire to the work -- a flaming eagle seemingly suspended against a blue-black sky. Later as the ashes smoulder and the night air becomes frigid, Mother Nature creates her own show high above as the northern lights emerge.
