The 'Winter Memories' series by Shinobu Koizumi is one that will never melt. The series looks like it is made from snow, inspired by Koizumi's want to preserve elements of the winter months throughout the rest of the year.
'Winter Memories' consists of a small snowball, which serves as a paperweight that will not leave water stains on paper, a snowman that can hold objects where its arms would go and a snow-topped stool that looks like it was left out in the elements for a long period of time.
The objects are made from a mixture of salt crystals and epoxy resin, although it has an entirely convincing snow-like appearance. Koizumi has managed to replicate one of the most fun winter activities without the cold.
