Ice Sculpturing in Akron

February 14, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
Scouting out a prospective wedding site for a June wedding, we met Joseph and Jason chainsawing a piece of ice. They were working off a wooden table behind the hall Joseph manages. The location? St. George Fellowship Center beside St.George Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church, 3204 Ridgewood Rd in Akron, Ohio. The catering is done by TLC Catering,whose website is: http://tlccateringinc.com/stg.html
 
Joseph took a 300 lb. block of ice, cut it in half vertically and then cut each half vertically in half again so that 4 tall narrow cubes were the result. Each would be made into 4 separate pedestals. St.George's is having an anniversary celebration soon, and one of the ice pedestals is to be used for that occasion. However, Joseph regularly creates personalized pedestals to be used at weddings or other special occasions for TLC at the hall.
 
How did you learn this art?”, we asked. “One intensive training afternoon session from my friend who does this,” was his answer.
 
Meet Joseph and his nephew, Jason.
