Glacier Dragons are mythical creatures inspired by the majestic beauty of blue ice glaciers reproduced here as captivating fine art sculptures.
A special glass chemistry was required to capture the refractive beauty of mystic glacier blue.
This blue color in glaciers results from overtones created by oxygen-hydrogen bonds in water which absorb red light.
The absolute purity of frozen glacial water under enormous compression does the rest.
Our Glacier Dragon series is a tribute to the Snow Dragon ice cave discovered inside the Sandy Glacier on Mount Hood, in Oregon.
This is the dragon sculpture version of the Glacier Dragon inspired by the modeling images on the left.
The modeling images also show the entrance and interior of the dragon's lair in the ice cave complex.
Ice cave systems are temporary by nature and result from the melting of a glacier's interior.
Mount Hood's Sandy Glacier is home to the most extensive glacier cave system in the contiguous United States.
Large ice caves form when a glacier thins and the weight of the overlying ice no longer squeezes the caverns shut.
Glacier ice is the largest reservoir of freshwater on Earth and supports one third of the world's population.
