In the early 1800s, ice harvesting as an industry took hold as horse-drawn ice cutters pulled thick blocks of ice from frozen lakes for use in insulated ice houses and cellars
Ice covers about 10% of the earths land mass and about 7% of its oceans
Ice is created when water gets below 32 degrees Fahrenheit and it freezes
The different types of ice are classified by their density. There are 16 types of ice
Glaciers are huge masses of ice that 'flow' like very slow rivers. They form over hundreds of years where fallen snow compresses and turns into ice
Hot water freezes faster than cold water. This is known as the Mpemba Effect, and no-one knows why it happens
We’ve been leading the way in the global and UK ice carving industry since 1993. Our ice sculptors push the boundaries of what’s possible. We’ve suspended working electric lights in ice, carved ice chandeliers, ice cars, aquariums, ice houses, permanent and semi-permanent pop-up ice installations and beyond. We thrive on providing creative, innovative solutions to a client’s needs and managing complex logistics and crazy deadlines.
Since 1993 we have received multiple awards recognising our talent across the event and ice carving industry. Icebox has featured heavily in the International and UK press and TV; the chances are if you have seen an ice sculpture in your life, it is most likely one of ours!
