  • Thors comment

    " It was just the other day when I talked to a customer who visited me in the studio, and who had bought a pot from me with this glaze effect. He told me how much he liked it, and I was saying that I unfortunatly havent been able to reproduce it "the effect of the pink not melting out, looking like veins". And then, in this last firing, I managed to repeat it. One of those happy moments for a potter. ”

    About the march edition 2019 - "Murky”
     "Early spring, where I come from, is not bright colours and lush green. It is dead grass, brown leafs revealed under the melting snow, and murky waters pouring down from the marshes in the mountains. Until the yellow spring flowers start to burst out, my world is a sober pastell of the earths true colours."
