Strange formation: Can anyone tell me what the heck this is?

Here is a shot I took last winter on Lake Erie at Crystal beach. The ice formation you see is sitting on solid ice, but it was "somehow" formed and raised above the ice. These were about 20 to 50 feet off shore, and they were about 10 to 15 feet long and maybe 3 feet high. The best way I can describe the ice on top are that they are like shards of broken glass, while the ice on the lake is dead smooth.

There were 3 or 4 of these ice sculptures.

Anyone know how they are formed or what this is called?
