Entertainment Industry

Los Angeles and Hollywood represent the heart of the entertainment industry
worldwide, and LA Ice Art has been a part of that for over 30 years. Ice artist Rex
Covington began working on entertainment industry film and TV sets early on with
movies like “An Eye For an Eye”, starring Sally Fields and Kiefer Sutherland,
“Austin Powers The Spy Who Shagged Me”, and Janet Jacksons music video for
“Rhythm Nation”.

Creative and talented Directors, Scenic Designers and Prop Masters quite often
need ice sculptures or on set consultation and LA Ice Art is the go to source for elite,

Ice sculptures in the media transcend the geography of Los Angeles and Hollywood
California, as they often air nationally, and in some cases, globally, like the Grammy
awards in 2012, which had 39 million viewers.

LA Ice Art is honored to be a part of this exciting industry, and has documented the

Photographed in the freezer before its royal appearance, this large vase was presented in a round tray with sub-lighting (provided by LA Ice Art) at a 5 star wedding. The floral bouquet on top of it was enormous. The table location however, had no power, so we placed the remote battery powered alternator rig under the table. This will give you 6-8 hours of lighting power no matter where you want your ice sculpture (rental item).  Vase dimensions: 20” diameter top x 42” height (raised 5” more on the light).  Tray footprint: 3’ diameter.

 This 6’ tall rendition of the Greek statue “Apollo “ was sadly used as a burn test dummy for Katy Perry’s Grammy performance rehearsal. Shortly after this photo was taken, the sculpture was immersed in flames and melted from 450 lbs. to 250 lbs. in less than 3 minutes. The fate of Apollo the God was not so cruel, but the show must go on.

This sculpture can be done using 1, 2, or 3 blocks. I don’t recommend the 1 block version because the base footprint is supposed to be square. This image used 3 block which allows for a base piece under the tower frame. (3’x 3’x 6’H)
