“Artisan Ice Sculptures ROCK! I called with a 24 hr notice and they were able to accommodate me and the location was 3 hours away as well – exception craftsmanship, and the Guests/ Trustees at UNC Kenan Flagler Business School were extremely impressed. They delivered on time, set it with the drain lines and proper trays so it was maintenance free the remainder of the event. Stunning – I have opened and operated 52 Restaurants ranging from ESPN Zone in Times Square to Rainforest Cafe’s on Disney Properties and now own operate my own Catering Company in Chapel Hill, NC; and have done multiple Ice Sculptures over the years, hands down, this was the best ever!”

Kenton Jenkins- Xu Catering

“I wanted to let you know how impressed everybody was with the fantastic ice sculpture you did for the Carolinas Chapter Club Managers Association of America function at River Run Country Club. It achieved the goal of setting the stage for a great event. I couldn’t believe how high it was with the suspended arch and how smooth the pillars were. In addition, the replication of the River Run logo was perfect. Thank you again and I will be happy to recommend your company to any of our clients in the future.”
