    About the edition "Trace of the Dragon”
    "There is two meanings of the name of this edition. One is that it is now two years ago, on the day, since I came back from my studies in Japan with Mr Hidemi "Shuhou" Kataoka in Tokoname, where I among making pots also helped out with sculpturing and restoring a 150 year old wallpiece depicting a monk riding a dragon among the clouds, wich became a symbol for the whole experience for me, and this edition is a homage to. Second is that it is also a comment on what is going on in the world right now, where I see it is as our mission to hunt down and kill the raging dragons that force fear upon us all. Now they are hiding deep in their caves, but can be traced by the brownish snow, left by their fuming breath that stains the entrance to their hiding place. To pin down evil, follow the trace of the dragon."
