The Art & Science of Ice Sculpting
We start by understanding your vision – from a ‘back-of-the-napkin sketch’ to an inspiring photo or drawing – transforming ideas into reality.
Next is the design phase. Similar to an architect or engineer, we develop a concept and create a digital rendering that guides our creative process.
Our building blocks are 300-pound masses of crystal clear ice created in a special machine called a Clinebell, located at our production plant in Maryland.
Taking single blocks and fusing them together, the ice becomes our sculptors’ canvas.
Power and hand tools – chainsaws, routers, grinders, chippers and chisels – are used to create shapes, cut angles, form edges and smooth surfaces.
Each sculpture is then numbered, boxed and safely transported in specially designed freezer trucks to your event destination where the final touches are applied. On-site, our expert technicians use brushes to create texture and blow torches to melt ice and form a polished and finished sculpture.
