  • Thors comment

    "This is the model of pot I use for many of my own trees. The round shape gives you the possibility of several fronts and appreciate the tree from all directions. The rough grey clay and the primitive look is also something that appeals to me, it goes very well with several bark colouration and texture."

    About the october edition "KRAKEN”"This edition is named after its centerpiece that is the first design I do that depicts the deep sea creature Kraken that according to the norse sagas inhabit the deep fjords of Norway where it catch and drag down ships to the bottom of the sea. The rest of the edition contains some of my trademark designs like the Nidhögg, the Skull and Cherry Blossoms. I am also very happy about a few colourfull pots that guest artist and ceramist Carina Jern has glazed.""
