It is very inexpensive, a few dollars, to buy a counter-top ice crusher, that a professional bartender might use to crush ice for drinks.  Can be bought at most any store.  We crush ice every day on a daily basis to create a small tub of  ice we need for reagents.  Only the size of like a small kitchen food processor. Just add ice cubes and crush them in a few seconds without a hammer and the mess.

Hi gudrun, 

Place the ice - ice cubes works best in a plastic bag, wrap in a towel and 
bash with a heavy object like a hammer. You can also use Jamie Oliver's 
trick - put ice cubes in a cloth tea towel, , bring the  4 corners together, 
tie them in knot, and then hit the "parcel" on the edge of your work surface 
until the ice is the sze you need.... 

hope this helps
