Ice Sculptures

We design and hand carve all types of ice sculptures to be suited to your needs. At Culinary Artisan, we will only use our own flawless ice blocks, made on our premises, ensuring you the highest quality available. Also, all of the ice sculptures that we provide can be produced at your facility as a demonstration for no extra charge. Our most popular designs include wedding themed sculptures, signs and logos, and food displays,

Wax Sculptures

All of our tallow sculptures are to be made by hand locally in Oxon Hill, Maryland. Each piece is special and unique. They are made from 100% purified food grade tallow available in pure white, cheddar, or chocolate tones. Pieces may be rented to save you the cost of material, labor, time, storage space, and maintenance. Pieces elegantly accentuate the beauty of your lobby, buffet table, or dining room. These pieces will most definitely impress your guests and promote your business.

On-Site Demos

Most of our work, whether it's ice, dough, wax, fruit, or vegetables is done at our studio and brought to your function. However, if requested, we are willing to do live demonstrations on-site at no extra charge. Please let us know when placing your order if you are interested in having a live demonstration and we will provide you with safety instructions for you and your guests.
