Hello, my name is Matthew Stoddart and I am the Lead Ice Artist at Lexington Ice Sculptures. As a young child I was always intrigued with watching my father (Michael) carve ice and attend ice competitions with him. When I was 12 years old, my parents trusted me with a chainsaw and power tools, a year later, I was competing in my first ever ice competition …and won! I was hooked! I love what I do and my passion for creating and designing sculptures for our clients has continued to evolve ever since I joined full time with my parents business, Seasons Catering & Lexington Ice Sculptures. So, if you have a vision or dream, let me help you make it a reality in ICE! Let’s WOW everyone.
Thank you so much! Seasons Catering has made my semester so much easier with managing dinners every week!

Thank you so much for your help in planning the catering for my daughter’s Halloween wedding. We were very pleased with everything. The staff was very professional and accommodating – never really noticed their presence making for a stress-free experience! The ghost ice sculpture was a hit and made my daughter’s candy table a definite focal point.
