If you were out doing your Christmas shopping on Reading’s Broad Street last Saturday, you would have been treated to the live carving of a polar bear. Here you can see the intrigued punters looking on as Ben chisels away at the blocks of ice that eventually smooth out and melt into shape.

As you can see, Jack has also been very busy freezing cosmetics such as perfume bottles into snowflake sculptures for the Mayfair-based celebrity hideout, Nobu.

The Hamiltons not only created the UAE eagle logo, but they also managed to fashion various extravagant food receptacles in ice, including a grand piano that served to hold strawberries.

This week you can catch the team in Derby city centre on Thursday 8th December and in Leyton’s Coronation Gardens on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th December where they will be sculpting a surprise selection of frozen curiosities for your viewing pleasure. Don’t forget to pop down and have a look!
