Fun Fact Friday

Did you know that over 99% of the freshwater ice in the world is located in two places: the 5.4 million square mile ice sheet covering Antarctica and the slightly smaller (656,000 square miles) sheet on Greenland? Food for thought on our next Texas “Snow Day!”

Testimony 02

“I had the distinct privilege of working with Sean Leahy of Full Spectrum Ice Sculpture for a vendor showcase. Not only was Sean Leahy, the owner, instrumental in creating a unique ice bar that reflected the historic look of the Driskill Hotel, but his prompt communication and follow up was impeccable. His “showpiece of ice” was the talk of the entire event. In addition, I was able to see his ability to focus on intricate details that were memorizing to look at. Full Spectrum Ice Sculptures are well worth the value they will bring to any event.”

Testimony 01

“Our wedding had a traditional Irish motif to it, and Sean made a beautiful claddagh sculpture for our wedding reception with our monogram engraved in the center of the heart. It was gorgeous. Our ice sculpture was the centerpiece on our buffet table, so everyone (all 300+ guests) had to walk by and see it. We got so many compliments, we couldn’t be happier! Thank you so much Sean 🙂 ”

Drive for Five

June was an exciting time in San Antonio as the beloved Spurs put together their latest Drive for Five. The past three seasons, Full Spectrum Ice Sculptures has been cheering the team on every step of the way, providing ice sculptures at every home playoff game!


After another solid season, the excitement grew with every win and round advancement. Despite falling to the defending champions Miami Heat, the Spurs proved once again that Team is Everything and gave it everything they had, pushing the championship battle to a thrilling game 7.

Although the Spurs came up a little short in 2013, we still believe and will be looking forward to doing our part to contribute to another drive for five in 2014. Viva Los Spurs!
