Last weekend, the Canada Cup of Ice Carving took place in Edmonton, drawing in competitors from all around the world.

One of the teams representing Canada included Steve Buzak from Edmonton and his ice carving partner, Scott Harrison, from Calgary. The two of them had just taken the bronze at the international ice carving competition in Harbin, China. 

Buzak joins Tom Power live from Edmonton to explain a bit more about the world of weather-dependent art and whether he thinks ice-cold temperatures help or hinder the competition.

The Boardwalk Ice On Whyte and International Ice Carving Exhibit continues this weekend in Edmonton.
