About the december edition "Midvinter”
"We have now reached the darkest time of the year, and just celebrated the midvinter solstice. While the wheel of the year takes a new turn it is also the most busiest time for me as a bonsai potter since it is now I make all custom ordered pots that are to be ready for spring. But part of doing commissions I have offcourse worked on my monthly release. The december edition is mostly unglazed, rustic sculptured pots in dark tones. But a few pearls of great glazes is in there. I am especially very happy with a very unique piece with details in sterling silver, and a few red ones with ash glaze. Very suitable for all conifers."
