about us

ice dragon ice sculptures offers the finest quality ice sculptures in New Orleans and throughout much of the Gulf South. Our general delivery area (see our service area map) ranges along I-10 from Baton Rouge to Destin and north to Jackson, MS and Montgomery, AL. Of course, this area includes Slidell, Gulfport, Biloxi, Pensacola, and Mobile. On occasion, we have events as far west as Lafayette and as far east as Tallahassee. For very special events, we can go anywhere.

Most ice dragon pieces are hand carved by Dawson List. Dawson is a gold medal ice sculptor (NICA and ACF) that has carved throughout the U.S. and travelled as far as Europe, Alaska, and the Caribbean to create spectacular ice art. Dawson has carved ice for more than 20 years and competed at 5 national championships (finishing as high as 4th), 4 world championships (finishing as high as 2nd & 6th in team events), and at the Olympic carving competition in Provo, UT in 2002.

Ice carving techniques and technology are quickly advancing as ice artists adapt computer aided machinery to carving ice. More and more often, our logo and graphic sculptures, as well as many ice serving pieces, are carved on some of the most modern CNC ice machinery available. This enables multiple color effects and high precision graphics and sizing that cannot be efficiently or affordably carved by hand. Some of our galleries will contain more and more machined designs as time goes on.
