Top 300 Ice Sculpture Companies
Professional ice carving companies, clients, and media from around the world ask Paul Germain to recommend AICD graduates and other top ice sculptors who are within close proximity of their location. Based upon 30 years of personal experience and client testimonies, we are pleased to refer the Top 300 Ice Sculpture companies. These companies did not pay a fee to appear on this list. Many of the ice sculpture companies listed are capable of providing services outside of their immediate area.

The ice carving industry is growing at a phenomenal rate in the U.S and around the world.

AICD is dedicated to providing the most comprehensive ice sculpture training possible for ice sculpture companies, hotels, caterers, country clubs, and culinary schools seeking to employ highly qualified, professionally certificated chefs and ice carvers.

"From the moment I met Paul he shared his vast amount of knowledge in ice carving. His facility has the latest tools used in todays business and is the ideal training ground for new upcoming carvers and mature carvers. Thanks Paul."

Executive Chef Brian Asch, CPIC, Annapolis Yacht Club,
Annapolis, Maryland

Wisdom worth repeating:

Pay now or pay later

Back in the 1800's, Englishman John Ruskin had quite a lot to say about the high cost of paying too little.

He wrote: "It is unwise to pay too much, but it is worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money and that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do".

Ruskin is also credited with another gem well worth mentioning. He said,
"I have no quarrel with those that sell for less. They know what their stuff is worth".

This wisdom is even more important when it comes to securing the kind of high quality instruction that makes amazing careers and reputations possible.

Please read what our alumni have shared...


AICD takes pride in providing the most comprehensive, professional, and productive instruction available. Our students continue to inform us that there are no other ice or food carving training programs that even come close to providing the quality and quantity of what they learned at AICD, nor with private instruction, nor with such fine-tuned efficiency, nor with such hospitality.

We have passionately enjoyed providing remarkable training experiences for chefs and ice carvers from around the world, and hope we will soon have the priviledge of welcoming you to our exclusive family of AICD graduates.

Sincerely, Paul and Robin Germain

Be sure to read what chefs and career ice carvers have shared about their experience at AICD.

In addition to providing comprehensive private ice carving instruction and ongoing support for graduates from around the world, AICD will be hosting special events featuring well known leaders in the ice sculpting industry who have distinguished themselves in either the commercial or competitive arenas.

Please send Paul Germain an email indicating that you would like to be notified about these events. These events will be scheduled based upon student interest.
