2) How long will the ice sculpture last?

There are many variables when it comes to the longevity of an Ice Sculpture. For example, temperature, direct sunlight, size of the ice sculpture, ventilation, indoor/outdoor event, all play a very important role. On average, the life expectancy of an Ice Sculpture placed indoors will last for approximately 6-8 hrs depending on design.

3) How can you stop an ice sculpture from melting?

You cannot stop it or slow down the melting process. Only if it is displayed outside in cold conditions may an ice carving be preserved. The beauty of an Ice Sculpture is that something so perishable is sculpted into a work of art only to be viewed once.

4) What happens to all the water when it melts?

A drip pan is placed underneath a sculpture, with a hose attachment that leads to a container that his hidden underneath the table.

5) Are your ice sculptures made out of moulds?

No, they are not. Each ice sculpture is hand carved by David.

6) Can you create an original or customized ice sculpture for us?

Absolutely! We can work from any idea you may have.  You may also provide a picture of an idea if you wish.  Almost anything can be carved out of ice.

7) How do you make the writing, letters or logos white?

We carve the letters or logo using router bits, and die grinders, similar to a dremel tool. Then we refill the engraving with a fine ice and snow mixture.
