    " I decided to put skulls on the corner of this "Gotham" design pot, and I like the result. Look at the photo taken from above. This pot really gives your tree a firm courtyard to stand on."

    About the july edition 2019 - "Skulls”
    ""Skull" in swedish means "Cheers", because we used to drink in our forfathers, or enemies cranium bowls. So it felt natural to make a bonsai pot in the shape of a skull, as a celebration to life. When the japanese bonsai magazine Shunju published a photo where my skulls was featured back in 2016 it resulted in an invitation to japan 2017 to work with Hidemi Kataoka in Tokoname. I have received many offers to massproduce this design, but I am fascinated with the evolution of it, that would go dead if I took on any kind of an offer like that.
    Death is the condition for all life. Skål!"
