Valentine’s Day Ice Sculptures

Valentine’s Day Ice Sculptures

Romance is in the air, and so is the winter chill! Combine the two with exquisite ice sculptures suitable for Valentine’s Day. These fabulous works of melting art are a welcomed addition to any event and will glorify this special time of year. How do you go get from start to finish, though?

 

Often people want to know what tools are used to make such wondrous displays of affections. Many are surprised to learn that a Valentine’s Day ice sculpture doesn’t begin with carving tools. In fact, you need to actually make the block of ice first and foremost! Our line of work stations and ice block makers provide the correct size blocks to start with.

 

While a chainsaw can get you moving in the right direction, finesse is better left to our ice sculpting tools. Hand tools are best when working with intricate designs. Delicate and tender care is put into the piece using these crafting tools.

 

What types of Valentine’s Day ice sculptures best represent this time of year? The classic heart design is always requested, but there are so many creative ways to incorporate such a well-known symbol of love. Blending the heart shape into any number of other designs can create the right atmosphere for the season.

 

Here are some other excellent concepts for sculptures that would fit in with a Valentine’s Day event:Valentine’s Day Ice Sculptures

 

  • Cherubs are virtually the personification of a certain love-struck angel that has a bad habit of shooting arrows.
  • Doves are not only a universal symbol of peace, but they can inhibit the spirit of romance as well.
  • Swans are so graceful that even a still image of a pair can illicit warm feelings of love.
  • A key…but a key to what? To someone’s heart, perhaps?
  • A rose by any other name would still be a romantic and classic ice sculpture!

Holiday Tours With Ice Sculptures

Holiday Tours With Ice Sculptures

As the holidays are in full swing, the music is playing in all the stores and everyone is trying to find the perfect gift for the loved ones. Holiday decorations are strewn across shops and stores, houses and businesses, and the city streets. You can see a snowman or Santa Claus in every window and every tree has a festive look with lights and ornaments.

 

This is also the time of year where festivals of lights or Christmas light tours happen. Showcasing creative light designs, when displayed at night, of jolly Saint Nick and his faithful reindeer as well as Hanukkah menorahs and dreidels, get everyone in the holiday spirit.

 

Adding Holiday Themed Ice Sculptures To The Festivities

 

Holiday festival light designs are great and the draw for families and tourists, but an ice sculpture is the cherry on top and really adds a different dimension to the theme. An ice sculptor can really be creative with his creations; using winter and holiday recognizable characters such as Frosty the Snowman or The Grinch to even just making a 3D snowflake or Christmas tree.

 

Using LED lights and pedestals, the ice artist can incorporate more into the imagination, adding color to the ice and putting emphasis on certain aspects of the sculpture. Red and green would go well with any ice design since they are the traditional holiday colors but thinking outside of the norm, using a bright silver or blue can also draw attention to the piece. Even trying to attach a carrot or cob pipe to Frosty can go the extra mile for entertainment.
