What is the purpose of an ice carving? Ice carvings are primarily for decoration. They are elegant and create a memorable addition to any event.

Where do I display an ice carving? Ice carvings can be displayed at the entryway, on an appetizer table, with a beverage station, near the dessert table, by a gift table or maybe your hall has a special place. We do recommend a dark background if available and little-to-no top lighting is encouraged.

How are ice carvings created? The carving process starts with a chainsaw and uses die grinders, wood chisels, and handsaws to complete the detail.

How big are the carvings? An uncut block of ice weighs 260 pounds, and stands 42 inches high, 20 inches wide and is 10 inches thick.

What do I do with the carvings when the party is over? You will need to dispose of the leftover ice either outside or in a sink. Simply hug the carving and lift it off of the box and carry it to the appropriate place.

Who are we and where are we located? Business owner Eric Snider is the carver, and his wife Angie Snider is the business manager. Together, they run this business out of their home at 703 N. Franklin St. in Staunton, IL.
