Our friends at Glacial Art have just celebrated their tenth year in business; a decade of producing fantastic ice sculptures and doing what they love every day. They gave us an update on what they have been up to lately and how they have grown since their humble beginnings in 2006….
Lots of couples may have seen the fabulous ice sculptures created by Glacial Art at wedding fayres and events across the country, but fans will have also spotted their work in the incredible hit show Game of Thrones. HBO asked the team to create a striking piece of set for their Oathbreakers episode. “We crafted a huge “ice henge” with an ice altar – the perfect place for the Night King to take his victim. It was a real rush seeing our work on TV! A year later they contacted us again asking us to create something new for the promotion of the Season 4 Box Set. We took on the challenge of making the Iron Throne out of ice, and positioned it in Covent Garden where visitors could take a seat on it (don’t worry, there was a cushion put down!)”
Glacial Art have also contributed ice sculptures to both York’s Ice Trail and Durham’s Fire and Ice Festival, with over sixty ice sculptures made for York alone – and you can read all about it on their blog. They take regular commissions for sculptures and ice luges for weddings, have provided some classy decorations for the Grand National and also made a striking piece for the County Brides North West Wedding Awards which took place in June.
They certainly like to keep busy, creating pieces for high profile brands like Adidas, Bench, MTV and Rolex as well as winning the European Ice Sculpting Championships, and having drinks with Quentin Tarantino!
