First Night Ice Sculptor

Boston's first night ice sculptors will be putting the finishing touches on their frozen creations this weekend.

In all five massive sculptures, using 180 tons of ice, will grace downtown Boston.

One of those is "Here Fishy Fishy."

The coral reef scene will take up 720 square feet and stand 18 feet high. The entire scene, including seaweed, divers and fish will be made from 22 tons of crystal-clear ice.

WBUR's Abigail Beshkin spent a day with the sculptor of "Here Fishy Fishy" in his freezer-studio in Lawrence. Click the listen link above to hear her story.
