Twice the Ice in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Angela Hansberger wrote up The Ice Book and Ice by Amy Brady for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. 

The story is here (paywalled).

I was able to access the text via my public library (did you know you can do that to get through newspaper and even magazine paywalls?) and a few quotes from the story:

English's The Ice Book celebrates, with practicality, the renaissance ice age in which we live. He has researched clear ice since 2009, documenting and sharing his findings with the bar world.

He provides guidance on how to create the clearest cube, the sparkliest sphere and the most dazzling of diamonds by cutting and shaping ice, with a main focus on directional freezing. Experimentation led to the discovery that clearer ice can be produced by encouraging water to freeze in one direction, rather than from the outside in toward the center.
