Assistant Professor of Fine Arts Amy Hauber and two students in her sculpture class participated in the 2005 New York State Snow-Sculpting Championship, held in Glens Falls, New York, January 28 through 30. Hauber, Blythe Stoecklein '05 (of Pittsburgh, PA) and Ryan Conroy '05 (of Bantam, CT)  also known as "Team Larry"  created a piece called "Penny Atop A Cake," inspired by Hauber's pug dog, Penny.

Hauber reports that although the endeavor "turned out to be one of the most physically challenging tasks I have ever faced, and the three of us had an amazing time figuring out how to carve (without power tools) an over 10-foot-tall block of rock-hard, man-made compressed snow," she plans to do it all again next year, also with two students from her sculpture class.

Below are, from left, Stocklein, Conroy and Hauber, proudly displaying their certificates of participation in the event, along with photos of the work-in-progress and the finished piece.
