Showing his imagination through ice
For many Twin Cities residents, admiring the ice sculptures at the St. Paul Winter Carnival is an annual tradition. For Woodbury resident Jim Zupfer, carving the ice sculptures is the tradition.
Zupfer took third place in this year's amateur single block carving competition, which took place Jan. 29 in St. Paul Rice Park. His ice sculpture, titled "Glacial Grace," depicts his 9-year-old-daughter Sylvia Grace as a ballet dancer.
