Block ice refers to large blocks of ice, as you would imagine from the name. This type of ice is used to get things cold and keep them that way for a long time. If you have ever seen a genuine ice box, block ice is what it was made for. Due to it being a large, solid mass, it takes a long time to melt, and it can keep food and drink at an ideal temperature for an extended period of time.
Block ice can keep your buffet at a safe temperature, ensure that your seafood is served cold, and even allow you to keep fresh meat out safely so your guests can select their preferred cut. It can also be used in shaved ice machines, allowing you to make your event quite the special treat.
We offer our block ice in 25-pound increments, topping out at 300 pounds. We offer several levels of clarity, including Clinebell ice blocks. If you need ice blocks for any reason, we have you covered.
If you are looking to make your special event stand out from the rest, and ice sculpture is the way to do it. We can offer you large, impressively detailed sculptures as well as small, simple pieces. The smallest ice sculpture we offer is a shot glass. The largest? Well, the sky’s the limit.
Our ice sculptors are true artists. They take a difficult, delicate medium and work it into something enchanting. We can create sculptures from photos, sketches, or create something brand-new for you. We always love a challenge here at Crystal Ice.
