About Us

Glacial Art is the combined skills, hard work and creativity of Mat Foster and Mat Chaloner.

Our excellent reputation and improving success of the business is due to one main factor, we absolutely love what we do. We love making things and always have done since we first used scissors on cereal boxes and sellotape on toilet roll tubes!

Established in  2006, we have designed and created ice sculptures for clients such as Rolex, Jaguar, Gucci, United Utilities, Sony and MTV. For the past four years the Glacial Art team have represented the UK in the European Ice Sculpting Championships winning 1st place (2009) and 3rd Place (2010 & 2011& 2013).

We have carved sculptures for the Game of Thrones (Season 4, Episode 4, Oathbreakers) and for the Cannes Film Festival, (2012 & 2013) that shows the depth and breadth to our ice work. With our skills and professionalism the possibilities are endless in creating stunning pieces of ice art.

Mat Foster - Creative Director

The model making skills have transferred beautifully into the medium of ice that enables Mat, the Creative Director of Glacial Art, to produce unique sculptures unavailable from any other ice carving company. Examples of this are the Ice Steam Train, Ice Tank and Ice Rolex Watch.
