Ice Carvings

ice carvingIce Carving is a specialty art form. From the casting of the crystal clear block of ice to the careful hand carving process, each piece is individually created and unique.

Ice carvings make spectacular centerpieces: Used as the centerpiece of your buffet table, an ice carving makes a dramatic visual enhancement to your room decor.

Select from a variety of styles: Ice carvings come in every shape and size, from carvings incorporating company logos to dramatic winged birds, or woven baskets for floral arrangements, to specially carved wine baskets.

Ice carvings last six to nine hours indoors and up to four hours outdoors in the sun without losing their shape.

Be sure you let your caterer or facility coordinator know you will be using an ice carving so that they can plan the layout of your buffet table and place it near an electrical outlet. Ice carvings are shown at their best when lighted from underneath.

Have your ice carver coordinate the delivery and set-up with your caterer. You don't want your ice carving delivered too early or too late. Your caterer is the best person to coordinate delivery times and set-up requirements.

Ask about having your ice carving created on-site: Your guests will enjoy watching as your block of ice turns into a work of art.
