Creative Arts & Attractions Ice Carving Artists

Creative Arts & Attractions Ice Carving Team travels around the world to create Ice Sculptures for visitors to enjoy. Our artists are internationally-acclaimed professional ice carvers from the city of Harbin in China, site of the world's largest ice and snow festival. Many of them started carving with ice while they were still in elementary school. It took them many years of practice with older more experience masters to become career carvers.
