It's a chip off the cold block

Art Hongpong, the owner of Cold Fusion Ice Designs, is on a mission to sculpt ice carving into a cool sport. On a recent day when it was colder outside than in his workspace, he dragged a 300-pound block of ice onto a loading dock. Then, armed with tools such as a chain saw and a scraper, he designed a snowflake on request.

"I don't do it for the money," he says. "I want this ice carving sport to be cool."
