Ice Carving in Bay Harbor: “The Reptilian” earns a Gold Medal

Ice Sculpture Lizard Man

Greg Butauski, Master Ice Carver, competed in the Ice and Spice Festival in Bay Harbor, MI, on January 17 & 18th and scored a gold medal!

The festival, sanctioned by the National Ice Carving Association, consisted of both professional and amateur competitions.

For the professional competition, Greg carved “The Reptilian”—half man, half lizard warrior—out of 10 blocks of ice. He earned a gold medal with this sculpture. Greg carved a total of 12 hours, over two days, in freezing temperatures!

The next competition Greg will compete in on the winter circuit will be held in St. Joseph, MI. The season wraps up with the big US Nationals competition in Perrysburg, OH. Be sure to check back for the results of all the competitions!

ice sculpting: a new year, a new logo

Rock On Ice is rolling out our new logo!

It has been many years of using the rockin’ guitar logo. And, while the logo holds a special place in our hearts, we felt it was time for a change. The new logo still has the rockin’ vibe, but with a little more sophistication. It will reflect a more branded look across all of our marketing materials, website,  and social media sites.

Check out the before and after logo…what do you think?

Even in the midst of energizing our brand—one thing remains constant—we remain dedicated to the customer. As Rock On Ice grows in the future, we believe in offering the highest quality in services and providing the most spectacular ice sculptures imaginable!

An Ice Sculpture For Your Wedding: A Unique Idea

Looking for something unique and memorable for your wedding—and that’s cheaper than flowers—try an ice sculpture!

The average cost for flowers is $2,000*, but can increase dramatically if it’s off-season, or if you are choosing exotic flowers.

Why not try ice?  The average cost for an ice sculpture is $350, and will provide a much more dramatic effect than flowers. Can you remember the flowers at the last wedding you attended? Besides the bridal gown, an ice sculpture will be the most talked about item at your wedding—guaranteed!

Here are some unique ideas for incorporating ice into your wedding:

  • an ice sculpture as the main centerpiece for your wedding.
  • individual mini ice sculptures at each table—a true
    conversation piece.
  • an ice bar—drinks served to you…on ice!
  • an ice luge – guests will love having their favorite
    drink poured down the luge.
  • food displays—keep food chilled and fresh for your
    guest by displaying it on ice.
  • beverage towers or ice  bowls—keep your drinks
    cold all night.

Only ice can give you that dramatic impact! Choosing a unique ice sculpture for your wedding will create a lasting impression for you and your guests.

Below is a gallery of cool ideas that you can incorporate into your wedding. Rock On Ice can customize a beautiful ice sculpture just for your wedding.
