Let LA Ice Art, a Los Angeles based ice sculpture company, create an exquisite
custom 3D ice sculpture for your special event. Hand-carved ice sculptures rely on
artistry, skill, and specific experience with design for ice, which often is key to a
stunning ice sculpture. Clients in search of incredible ice art for their special
occasion can rely on LA Ice Art and talented ice artist Rex Covington for creative
advise relating to this unique and sensational art form. Make your event the talk of
the town, and peruse our vast portfolio of works right here on this site to get ideas
and take your party to the next level.

We serve events in Los Angeles, Hollywood, and throughout California for
weddings, baby showers, birthdays, private parties, corporate events, red carpet
occasions, theme parties and much, much more.

Your vision is important to us and anything is possible, so have some fun and tell us
your ideas. Designing the impossible is what we do best, so a flying pig, a 10’ Polar
Bear, or a perfectly lit New York skyline ice sculpture is entirely doable. We love a
good challenge and know the craft from the very beginning when water is frozen
into crystal clear ice blocks, to the end when amazing ice art is lit and displayed
raising the elegance and excitement of any event.

Whether your needs include an intricate and detailed logo with multiple colors, a
custom themed ice bar, or a Spiral Luge for a luxurious pour, our services cover all
your ice sculpture needs.

With LA Ice Art, our quality and professionalism are held to the highest standard
of excellence. Our ice carving presentation gear includes waterproof rental lights,
drainage trays and display equipment. Please contact LA  Ice Art for a quote today.

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.

Anchor ice sculpture
 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.
Apollo in ice

Crescent moon & pearls in ice
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)
Eiffel Tower ice sculpture
Grammy parties in Los Angeles happen every year and this one featured many award winners from past and present. The sculpture was built in many pieces and the text work was hand done, not with CNC so this photo is a rare flash back to the way it used to be.
Gramophone ice sculpture
Two and three block animals are the best. The extra ice allows for the width and depth of the actual shape, like elephant ears. 4’x 2’x 3’H)

To my knowledge, NASA has not conducted these experiments, but this kangaroo ice luge, and this three tiered ice wedding cake with strawberries frozen inside might beg to differ.

 I'm really into Dungeons & Dragons. Have been since '74. I even play an epic wizard character in a 3.5 campaign that I won't go into here. Needless to say, when "Jane the Virgin" (hot new TV series in production) called asking for a Merlin and a marlin, I said "You got it." This was total fun. Merlin (4'x 2'x 6'H), 3 blocks, 400 lbs.
Wizard ice sculpture

Weighing in at 360lbs, this 4' Swan Princess replica was dangerously fragile. Honoring the 25th year of the movie's release, we were happy to see all the dressed up/costumed revelers celebrating the occasion after the films screening at the Arc Light in Hollywood. Perhaps even animated swans can get a star on the Walk of Fame.

Congratulations to David Yurman for donating 10% of sales to Polar bear foundations. His campaign across the country presented ice sculptures at stores in New York, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, and the three locals that we did. Shown here, Beverly Hills, CA, right out on the sidewalk, where you could press your head against the ice if you had a headache.
