My name is Matt Morris and I'm a community snow sculptor in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. I've been making large snow sculptures on our front lawn for many years. I've figured out how to build large and/or tall towers of snow and then carve them into sculptures. I do it because it's a blast. I enjoy the challenge of designing and building the structures and receive equal enjoyment from the interaction with the community. Each winter I have hundreds of great discussions with local kids and their parents, community members, taxi drivers, Canada Post workers, delivery specialists, and many who just hang out their car window for a quick chat. It's also a great workout! It's also a very reasonable hobby as its costs almost nothing. And lastly, I don't worry about storing my 'art' as it always melts off to a better place.
This website attempts to share my journey in snow. In the menu system you will find a yearly history of my creations and, if you are interested, you can follow my development as an artist. Elsewhere you will find more detail on many topics such as: how to make a tower of snow, how I make the eyes, how I make them spin, how I use plasticine to improve my sculpting skills and more. Enjoy! And feel free to provide feedback, or carving suggestions, by hovering on the HOME button and choosing FEEDBACK. Thanks for being curious enough to visit my site!
The first carve of each season is a Moai.

The tallest foot I ever created. Pretty sure it was an athletes foot.
I asked if people wanted Mick Jagger or Steven Tyler. They chose Mick. He rotated too.
