Jeff Stahl of Cincinnati, OH is a recent National Champion (2007) and also World Champion as part of a team that took first place in 2008 in the Realistic Multi-block portion of the World IceArt Championships in Fairbanks, Alaska. Jeff has been very active and successful at carving competitions and in the ice carving industry as a whole over the years. Some time back, Jeff was able to sell his ice sculpture business Artic Diamond, Inc, that he ran with his wife Michelle. His newer company, Sculptured Elements, is based in Central Illinois, although ice sculpting now takes a back seat to running a successful restaurant with his wife.
