Giant ice sculptures have always been popular in cold countries, but modern society has added mobility to them. While ice sculptures for large events have become quite popular, small ice pieces are now part of life for anyone who has a freezer. It is easy enough to add water to plastic molds, and the water is then frozen to create small sculptures that will last an hour or so after they are removed. This is becoming a popular way to shape ice cubes for smaller events.
The trend to create small ice cubes into art pieces has blossomed in recent years, and there are many vendors online who sell unique molds. Many of them are sold as sets, and they range from realistic fishes and dolphins to home and vehicle shapes. Celebrating a small event at home with these molds allows hosts to show their attention to detail in a new way, and it adds a dash of panache to the celebration.
