Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When did you start carving ice sculptures?
A: In 1981 I trained for over 2 years under Hiroshi Neguuchi, and internationally recognized ice sculptor and chef, in Chicago

Q: What type of tools do you use?
A: Chainsaws, grinders, chisels, blow torches and my own invention, the 'Frankensaw' which will shoot a stream of powdered snow about 15 feet into a crowd during demonstrations.  The kids love it.

Q: How many sculptures do you make?
A: I create seven to fifteen pieces each week.  Each piece takes one to two hours, and some more complicated creations take three hours or more.

Q: How much do the sculptures cost?
A: Most pieces range from $400 - $500 or more.

Q: What is your favorite part of the business?
A: Entertaining.  When I do a live demonstration my goal is to keep the crowd interested and it's amazing how magical the ice is - people stand in the freezing cold and watch and watch and watch.
