  • Thors comment

    "I usually do not make pots with lips but sometimes I like it, since you get a wider rim for a visible glaze effect that gives a broader frame around the tree. In this case my wife Carina Jern has glazed it with an amazing blue with pink and yellow/green crystals appearing like clouds."

  • About this edition

    About the edition "Blue Hours”
    "This edition is named after that phenomen that when it is neither day or night, in the twilight when you can see the blue light of space arraying through. "Blå timmen." Blue is dominant up here in the north now. Days are quickly getting shorter. Flowers are long gone and green is the only colour that accompanies the blue sky and ocean. So glazes I used pulls from deep ocean cobalt, to beach turquoise, cloudy sky to classical oribe, geen and yellows. All on clean shapes that has provided me with a canvas. I hope you enjoy this labour of love."
