Andy Singleton, Ice Sculpture 2012

A large paper icicle has been installed at Manchester Art Gallery as part of its Christmas celebrations. Andy Singleton's Ice Structure is a 3.5m (11ft 4in) high piece made from hand cut, scored and folded paper, "inspired by flowing ice forms such as icicles and frozen waterfalls". The artist also has a piece called Stellar Spire in the Eagle Nebula, which is based on images seen through the Hubble space telescope, included in The First Cut exhibition.
