How are your ice sculptures made?
We Start With Exceptional Ice….
Our “ice” is given as much attention as our sculptures. We treat our water with a Reverse
Osmosis System, the same type of water filtration system employed by the world’s finest coffee
houses. We create ice with gemlike clarity, 99.9% free of impurities that results in ice with a
slower than average melt time.
Before carving, each full block of ice measures 40” in height, is 20” wide, 10” thick and
weighs 280 pounds. Many of our designs begin on our CNC (computerized numerical control
machine). We then hand detail with chainsaws, die grinders, and chisels to achieve the final
We’ve invested in the finest precision carving tools (toys), ensuring our award-winning ice
artists to produce superior cut and we insist on CNC computerized technology to deliver precise
How long do ice sculptures last?
A full block ice sculpture will last 7-9 hours, beautifully. If not removed, ice will remain 24
hours later. If it is an outdoor event it is recommended the piece(s) be placed in a covered or
tented area (Out of direct sunlight). If placed outside for Winter Festival, we have had sculptures
last for over 2 weeks to a month.
