" The big brother to the palm size pot in this edition. As I wrote, I have had problems with the temperature in the kiln lately and I am trying to find out wich temperature I actually got in there. Is it 1240 Celsius, or 1230? These 10 degrees can have an impact on the glazes, like it did on this one as well. It usually gets a transparent green that let the surface of the pot shine through, and the drips on the side was supposed to turn pink. But this result is very exciting. I hope I can crack the code and repeat it.””

About the april edition 2019 - "Spring”
"The word Spring in swedish means "Run". And thats the feeling I have carried with me this month. From snow and frost to +15 Celsius and sunshine. Repotting like crazy and letting go of the wire while the branches are pulsing, and the buds shoots of. A look in the garden is a palette of yellow, white, red tulips and green grass with chlorophyll running like blood in the veins. And the air carries the sent of smoke from the gardens, where people set fire to branchs and leaves, to mark the death of the winter and to scare of all creatures of darkness in a celebration to the rebirth of life.
