Devlin has learned through trial and error, that ordinary tap water produces cloudy ice so he now uses distilled water for to produce his clearest ice. He varies the container size which alters the effects of how the water freezes and he uses all kinds of flowers including roses, posies, daffodils, and daisies to obtain a colorful set of flowers. Also, during the freezing process, water compresses each flower and squeezes out bubbles of oxygen from the petals. This results in lovely icy trails around the flowers.

Devlin enjoys this ever-changing process and he says, “I know that I have become somewhat obsessed with my frozen posies because when I bring flowers home, my wife asks, ‘Are those for me or the freezer?'”
