Hi Rob and Staff thanking you all so much for stunning sculpture 2.3.13 at Noahs Newcastle.
So very much appreciated. Everyone loved it (especially the Bride and Groom (a lovely surprise!).
I would highly recommend you for your expertise and professionalism.
Thank You so much again and all the best.
Being avid fantasy readers we have to admit we all love it when we get to carve something as delightful as a Unicorn. The Unicorn was a joint effort by our two up-and-coming apprentice carvers. Between them they conceptualised the Chess Piece style look for the piece, and carved it in one marathon session, passing tools back and forth and adding detail like demons.
We suspect this unicorn will be quite popular for fantasy style weddings, or fantasy theme 21st or even sweet 16 parties. Kyle was really pleased with the result and kind enough to pose with it for us when we delivered it.
We just love it when we get the chance to create something a little bit different, like this surf board with lovely hibiscus flowers frozen in it. It really helped set the party scene at the opening of Margaritaville in Sydney.
On 20 September 2012 Hemmesphere (at Ivy) turned 12 in style with a St Tropez tropical theme party. We carved the name Hemmesphere into ice and decorated it with palm tree theming. We’re told it was a night to remember with a glamorous guest list and spectacular features.

When Andrew Johns faced up to the challenge of The Footy Show’s Nissan Navara Mind over Matter, he was definitely put to the test. First he walked over hot coals burning at over 400 degrees C. Then to prove he could, he did it again and walked back the other way over the hot coals.
Then to give him a chance to cool off his tortured feet, he stood barefoot on a large block of ice, carved into the Nissan Pathfinder logo by us at Art of Ice Sculptures. He had to stand on the block of ice, which was painfully cold after the hot coals, until Mario Fenech answered a series of trivia questions correctly.
It was definitely a feet (oops I mean feat) to remember, so if you want to watch it, there is a link to the video of the segment here: http://wwos.ninemsn.com.au/video.aspx?videoid=8ce8bf36-3406-4538-90c4-5c426650603b.
For all you footy fans out there, if you’re watching The Footy Show this week (Thursday 20th September 2012 on Channel 9 at 9:30pm AEST), you should see something pretty cool. Yes, an ice sculpture. Can’t really say too much about it, other than that, at this stage.
It’s looking like it’s going to be a hot one this year, which we’re definitely looking forward to. It’s always nice to step into a freezer when it’s pushing 40 degrees in the studio. One design that will be very popular this year is our recent Half Block Luge with coloured logo. The logo is placed in between two sheets of ice, and the tubes for the drinks shoot through behind the logo. Being in the middle, the logo and tubes last extremely well and this design will stand up to the searing temperatures we get here in Sydney.
This week at Art of Ice we had the exciting task of replicating none other than Doug Pitt- Brad Pitt’s brother in ice for the Virgin Mobile #fairgobro campaign.
Heartfelt congratulations to everybody who entered the City to Surf fun run today in Sydney.
It was bitterly cold and windy when we set-up the ice sculptures in the Ernst and Young VIP pavilion, so we were just happy we didn’t have to go and run the race ourselves.
Well done to everyone who did, and we’ll look forward to doing it all again next year!
Here’s the latest way to keep beer bottles perfectly chilled, ready for service to your VIP guests. Each beer bottle is nestled in its own recess in the ice, sized snugly so it just fits. With the branding logo at the back, it’s a perfect way to show-case beer. Or other bottled drinks, of course.
