Progress: Art and the Chill Factor
Treasure Island Resort & Casino hosts a plethora of celebrations from weddings to corporate events — and many of the guests want an ice sculpture. The man behind the frozen works of art is Greg Schmotzer.
Originally from Red Wing, the Hastings-based chef started sculpting ice off a bet from an executive chef 17 years ago.
“He bet me I couldn’t carve ice after seeing me do some fruit and vegetable carvings,” Schmotzer explained.
