11:32 am
thomas olders began harvesting clear ice from a frozen lake. well now, his ice is in hot demand all over the world. time is of the essence in this business, as we find out from thomas, who knows exactly how to break the ice for his customers. ah. busy busy busy this is thomas ooh de room. you could call him an ice cold norwegian business man. busy he sells frozen water to build ice. hotels were to carve wintery sculptures, and he has a special relationship with ice. that doesn't leave him cold. it's melt in the summer time it melt when it gets hot, it melt. if you bring it inside an as a business point of view, it's very good because if the customers is happy for what they got on want to have it again, that will have to buy over and over again because his melts and go back to the
11:33 am
nature us walter, blue norway has vast landscapes, clean water and harsh winters. so the raw material he needs is right at his doorstep. we are on the lake. yeah. very close to my eyes, farm, just one hour east or, or slow. and in this area, it's normally not so much snow, but it's still normally cold, so it's gives clear and good ice quality. after nature has taken its course, he brings in the big gun. he saw the ice into even sized flocks. the ice can't even bear the weight to heavy equipment using his tractor, he cut so long even tracks in the frozen lake. he must not lose any time, but the blocks of ice fries again quickly. the biggest challenge is to stay on the ice and that angered ice,
11:34 am
or i would say it's important to try to have 90 degrees angles every cut because then it's easier when you use it later. we don't know if it going to be love, big ice wall of stack, a big pile ice to make a big ice filter. ice sculptures and hotels may be relatively new. but ice harvesting dates back centuries. the industrial each lead to a boom in the sector, norway remain to top export her of ice right up to the 1960s. and companies and private households weren't the only ones buying. there we had some high quality ice us well at that time, and that slightly bit to say market us, so we are selling to, for example, the high and cocktail bars are in london. they also both that sort of castilla royalties. they had it, and that it should be so clear that duke india read the newspaper true, a better big ice block. nowadays, the ice is transparency,
11:35 am
is especially important. each block weighs around a ton. with the right quality a block sells for about 700 euros. and to can be shipped worldwide if necessary. the blocks are used to carve intricate patterns or massive structures made of snow and ice, like this ice hotel in sweden. here, everything is made of ice from the reception to the bar in the rooms. and even the artworks are made of ice. one thing i may be never got used to it that is so strong . it can carry a lot. oh wait. and i said, it's all so soft. he stories some 400 to 500 tons of ice on his ice farm in order could come in any time. sometimes his expertise is also called fort, he's already supplied ice to major hollywood film productions.
11:36 am
it's a lot of different things that i and never had a billeted to see if i hadn't been working with snow and ice. so that's the best part to it. but personally, i think i'm more happy when i am. i'm a beach with 30 degrees, sa sunshine, burning out over my head instead o. stay in the shallows and minus 10 or minus 20 minus soda degrees. sounds like great vacation plants. as long as he doesn't have to put them on ice to take on more exciting jobs in the cold. busy for many soccer fans around the world, german professional player boss john shrine stagger needs. little introduction as one of the top players in the game. he enjoy to an illustrious career with byron munich and played for the german national team in 3 world cups. well, try and stagger, retired from soccer at the age of 35, but he's making headlines again. thanks to a new book, which takes
11:37 am
a close look at his life, both on and off the pitch. ah, the ending his career. he's back in the limelight along with his wife an advantage, and was author martinez. ethan martinez. you to has written a book about fancy inch mind snagit. divorced the youngsters miss. i forgot very fond of busty who is coming in. and of course, you can't avoid developing a bit of a fatherly feeling towards someone when you're twice as age for my mom. vocal tal. last name's fine stagger wanted his biography to be written, and a friend recommended author martine suitor. when the 2 met up the instant, we hit it off 10 minutes into the meeting. they already decided to work together wrong to moslem barons and one of her 1st meetings that musty said above. i'd
11:38 am
rather read a 1000 game scores than a single book is full. and you didn't like that. i am the country that i was thrilled because it made you all the more interesting as a character in a novel go or not. melinda martinez, uter insisted on writing more than just a biography. and so boston changed agger became the character of a biographical novel, one that strictly sticks to the facts. his, me, reiney girl is no less a novel. no, we're gone. but i can't make things up from scratch for the novel a visa. the storytelling style is what makes it novel esque the art the his i'd say larry's does. romana eskoville, martine zeta lives and zurich is one of the most popular and successful contemporary swiss writers. he achieved fame at mostly through thrillers. his books
11:39 am
typically mixed fiction, realism and social criticism, in which he explores the dark side of the financial world, words genetic engineering. ah, that for his new book, martinez, you do didn't have to come up with any of the stories. we think that was on their feet long come under the light of the smell. i think the book is very believable to some male for folk tom. for those who have followed me closely, it's easier to identify which parts are 100 percent real and which as martin said, i've been slightly adapted other or so from that perspective, i can totally see my life story in the book. so that was important to book um let me live on the status of it. of course his wife anna yvonne of ich got to read the manuscript in advance, especially because of my things. right. think i think it's really touches some think they've been side then of course it was
11:40 am
a different reading from this them around and them there were some things about him that they learned maybe from the book to but um yeah i my said was very emotional and i did have some theories in my id, former tenant world champion, and a van of ich has been together with boston shine stagger since 2014 martine suitor also interviewed her for his book research, and discovered a previously well kept secret it from oven garbage for october, hall, i was curious about the engagement found talk and asked, i wanna do tell me about the marriage proposal and faith. and she answered, well hm, i've never told to anyone about it before. darcy, here it turned out to be such a romantic story that i was so happy that i was allowed to write it for their boston or i liked the busty. so romantic professor announced, even as a little boy, he watched royal weddings with such great interest. her false,
11:41 am
i really liked. i took her out master good. fallen for vashti and shine stagger. is a romantic, as you can see in the wedding photos from 2016, and as to how he convinced anna von of it to marry him. that's revealed in the new book. one of you most people would probably look at these items and see them either as flea market fines or even chunk that has to go. but the greek designer cost us lum. brutus might view them differently. most likely, i'm the potential in them for a new chair or table. well, lumber, this creates furniture collages from almost anything that he can get his hands on, and the result is an eclectic mix of household items. we visited him at the studio in athens, where he lets his imagination run wild. this unusual
11:42 am
mix of materials and shapes is what characterizes the sculptural furniture by greek designer, cost us lum burritos. he turns whatever he finds into her munious artworks. blade try not to become specialist than some material, but the same thing, materials all the time and just visiting the friends and families, let's say of, of materials are just to bring some new energy in. try some new things. experiments ah, make mistakes. the greek designer makes his elaborate creations in his workshop in the greek capital, athens cheer. he is working on a fountain to have an idea in your head, and then you try materialize it. but then the material also has its own character and he told substance. and the dancers back and maybe sometimes you don't like the
11:43 am
answer. so you have to fight or you have to collaborate. the most challenging thing is to put them together. how do you hold together a piece of ceramic with a piece of marble? how do you hold together a piece of stainless steel with a piece of glass? lumber? this is work is attribute to periods such as the barrack style. for example, his elemental cabinets as a reference to a masterpiece of art history. the famous buttons and cabinets in 2004, the 18th century worth was auction for record price of around 30000000 euros, making it the most expensive item of furniture in the world. i was just trying to create the vase contradiction between a form that represents something very expensive, like the bud middle cabinet. ah, but then may reads from materials that i,
11:44 am
i collects that have no value or order. they're considered to be garbage. non british study designed in eindhoven in the netherlands. i graduated with honors. he prefers to work with his hands, whether soldiering playing tiles or glass blowing. numbly, this doesn't shy away from any technique. i think we're all able to do everything there is there is something else that stops us. ah. so oh is is for me is not so much about the skills is more about the will to do it. for me, everything is interesting and i cannot help that. i just want to dive into everything and at the same time library, this has a large selection of materials to delve into this treasures or things others throw away marcel at flea markets. all of these i collect from the street like old plastic toys,
11:45 am
or some roof tiles. someone was renovating their house and they just throw them away. for, for me, they are gold, broken, marble sings. this is one of my favorite materials to collect, and no one picks them up because they're super heavy except me. larry, this is represented by the renowned carpenters workshop gallery in paris. there his unique furniture collages are sold for 5 figure psalms. i understand the work as a, as a life organ. these in the sense that a, ah, you know, there is, there is an idea. there is a seeds that then we plans into the studio which is the ground. and then this think if we, if we love it and take care of it and we will give it our energy and our time than it starts. it's not, it's growing. castile embry, this is a designer and also somewhat of a full suffer. who enjoys international recognition them
11:46 am

11:53 am
water and floated down to the bottom of the boat, very slowly shaped, and he thought it looks like it's snowing in this class ball cindy's career. that's how the idea was born for the snow glow. pretty sneaky. his grandfather found a miniature version of the basilica in marie at sal and austrian pilgrimage site. he painted a pedestal with shoe polish and glued on the church, setting it in a glass globe in 1900. he applied for a patent down the world's 1st snow globe. the flakes fluttered down gently. thanks to the viennese formula. yes, men. my father was the 1st to produce the mixture of snow that we used to die he did, and that's my secret. so far, i'm the only one who knows exactly how it's done every year. the viennese manufacture produces around $200000.00 snow globes. almost all individual parts are made locally. the figures are made by hand, a process in which liquid plastic is poured into metal forms and pressed into shape
